Hi I'm having a home birth in late december. Well planning to anyway, the rest is up to fate I guess. Was supposed to have an antenatal appointment with my MW today but she just SMS'd saying she'd just got home from a long birth and needed to reschedule. Oh well
We live in melbourne. I'm 23 weeks along. We're having a boy I wish I had the patience to wait until birth but I couldn't help myself, I had to find out. Lucky I did because I was convinced I was having another girl and even bought little pink jumpsuits
All the best for your scan!

Luckily we didn't have to deal with all this collaborative agreement stuff, I think we booked in just before it all came into place. It was hard for me to find her though, because I'm due on christmas day most of the MWs I rang were on holidays! So finally I found one who referred me to my MW who is one of the few working over the holidays and we seem to have a good connection.
I love that we can just SMS when it comes to appointments. Plus I love that I'm not travelling half an hour to a huge hospital, waiting for hours with a toddler to be seen for 5 minutes then going all the way back home. Especially in this weather. It's so great doing everything at home, I don't get why everyone doesn't do it this way
Are you booking in with your MW on the 16th or still shopping around?

I'm 7 weeks pregnant (so still feeling a little delightful with morning sickness!). I just had a cuppa with my secondary midwife, first one I booked in a couple of weeks ago after a nice long cuppa and chat. Adore them both. We're not doing the collaborative agreement thing either. Not essential at this point and if worst comes to worst I can sign something stating that I am staying home based on my own choice etc. My first birth was a c-sec (after the bluddy cascade of intervention. Thanks knOB ) so getting to know women who trust the body to do what it should and are so wonderfully supportive is just bliss
We are going to find out what we're having so we can get more of an idea of names and shop
Oh, and I'm on the sunshine coast! Nice to meet you both!

Im having my second child at home in dec (christmas day due date as well!). so 23 weeks i think.
First bub was 36 hours and an emergency c-section (drug and intervention city!). So this time im hoping for a birth thats a little bit calmer and definitely more empowering!
we have decided to decline all tests apart from the morph scan (which we had at 19 weeks). And we somehow avoided the temptation to find out the gender. So another surprise for us
We have one midwife and shes totally awesome! And a reasonable price too!
We live north of Adelaide (moved this year from QLD)
