I 100% agree with the ideology that women who trust the hospital system are far braver than I am! I mean the statistics speak for themselves really, don't they. I'm reading a great book at the mo' by Henci Goer, she really spells it all out which is great.
By the way if anyone wants to borrow free/home birthing books I've got a bit of a library going. Happy to post out on lend or swap.
Family can be nutty on the homebirth front can't they! I'm doing ok with it, the inlaws well, I think they were both born at home (being of an early generation - born in the 40's - was the norm), so they dig it. And I basically told mum that if she wants to roll her eyes at me, I'll just not be contacting her anytime soon. She now supports me completely.
AFM, well my hubby watched a birth video for the first time last night and it was fantastic! You should have heard himy - "Oh, is that all? We'll be fine!" Bahahaha! Men.Though the woman in question made it look amazingly easy so we can only hope ours will go that smoothly!

I agree!! Those handing over complete control to the hospy are the brave ones
If I hadn't have seen it with my own eyes, and experienced it first hand, I wouldn't believe the lies that they tell you I was in bewilderment when my last IM got hold of my medical records. They were an ABSOLUTE contrast 100% to what they told me during each individual pregnancy at the time
For those FB, how do you propose to battle the hoops of registering bubs birth and gaining a birth certificate??
I have met a lovely IM for this time, and she has agreed to do a very reduced care arrangement for a reduced rate, but something tells me, as lovely as she is, I just don't want anyone there

I also agree that hospital birth = brave. My close family are very supportive of my HB choice, same with DH's fam (they're from England, I'm pretty sure DH was actually born at home).
My friends said they expected it, but weren't exactly understanding of the whole thing (and one was SO horrified to begin with). It's my extended family who won't understand or support my choice to HB - they are very pro hospies and doctors.
Meh, I'm happy with my choice!

It seems like registering isn't really that much of a battle, depending on who you get on the day at the BDM - what you need is two signed stat decs -
http://www.courts.qld.gov.au/Forms/G...tion200602.pdf - for QLD, not sure where you are?
Fill out & send back or hand in with these two:
(registration of a birth) http://www.justice.qld.gov.au/__data...pplication.pdf and
(application for a birth certificate) http://www.justice.qld.gov.au/__data...rt-Extract.pdf.
As far as I know that's all you need! Once you have the birth cert, you tackle Centrelink.

I have heard QLD is pretty good, but sucky for me I am in NSW
I have heard they are just impossible to deal with

Well good luck whichever path you take! I'm sure it'll work out perfect.
