Popping in... even though I'm not pregnant... another 6 months till I'm even planning on TTC,but reeeally excited about HB next time!
My first was breech, so i had an elective CS, my second was an induced VBAC, constantly monitored etc - blegh, but perfectly fine, if that was what I wanted...
But next one will be a HB babe
What's the deal with the collaborative agreements? And who needs to sign off on it? And what else do I need to know?

Yep, will have two midwives as my primary midwife likes to have another present in unlikely case of emergency. It's another set of hands if needed, and if all is going well the second midwife says she loves being the photographer
Will message you who I'm using.
As for the collaborative agreement - it gets more difficult anyway if you've had a previous c-sec. I'm sure there are obs who would go into agreement but you need to work within very strict guidelines and often a VBAC is a bit much for them anyway. Even if it wasn't I don't want to be pressured into induction etc if I go "post dates" (otherwise known as pre-baby!). My midwife is ok to work without one, but 'if worst comes to worst' I'm more than happy to sign something saying "My midwife has instructed me I should be having this birth in hospital but I am making the choice to stay home." that covers her legally if needed. But at the moment it's not even clear if that is going to be required

I'm 35 weeks and have planned a homebirth for this bellybabe. I'm on the central coast.
No need for 'collaborative agreement' here. what nonsense!

Just wanted to wish you all the best with your upcoming homebirths!
I had my first HB in Jan (3rd child, 1st was induction/c-section and 2nd was hosp. VBAC) and it was freakin' awesome! Will definitely be birthing #4 at home when the time comes

Hi everyone! Thank you SOOOO much for starting this thread traseal -- I've been dying to get to know everyone also. It's nice to be part of the 'When Are You Due' mummies, but this is just so much more special isn't it?
I'm 28 weeks, due 24th Nov and am in love with my midwife Helen Barrington! I gotta give her a mention because she's such a super legend - just so, so funny and energetic.
Everything's going smoothly, we're having a girl here in the Dandenong Ranges Vic. Mostly I'm really excited, but this being our first baby worries me a little. I can't even imagine the pain . . . All of the HB stories are comforting though. It's so lovely to hear the many success stories. Lillynix, I loved reading about Sabien's birth -- congratulations. I just hope we all get to write accounts similar to yours.

to tell you the truth I don't even know what a collaborative agreement is.
