I'd avoid a gp if you aren't seeing one regualrly, cause you'll only end up with grief over the whole thing. I'd see an IM or a chiro. They are less likely to give you a hard time about your choice.
It may be true that DOCS becomes involved if you present at the hospital, but if it is anything like the involvement I had with them when DD3 was 3 months (unrelated incident) it is nothing to fret about. They visited once a fortnight, asked me my version of events 20 times, and then closed the case.

Yes, even if they were to interfere I wouldn't feel particularly threatened as I don't have anything to hide.
Things are looking good; I'm researching now how to register a birth in the state we're moving to, and it seems ridiculously easy! Nothing about needing a GP/medical professional to confirm my pregnancy via a letter is stated. We'll see.

Ohh i'm in Tassie! I'm in the South, whereabouts are you planning to be?

We're not sure yet as we will be renting for a few months before settling in for good - we're so far only familiar with South - loved Hobart, so very different to other capital cities, so relaxed and lovely! But North seems to be a bit more affordable in some ways. We really want land so depends on what pops up I think!

I'm just 10mins out from Hobart CBD in the Nothern Suburbs
There's a bunch of us weirdo home/freebirthers down here There's also some lovely home/freebirthers around Launceston too, but I haven't managed to get up there to meet them yet!

I believe my friend left it too late to organsie a birth certificate and she couldn't actually prove when the birth had taken place. Good to see you won't be making the same mistake!

S'all good mate - if I come off as a little defensive, it's probably because I am!
Certainly not aggressive though, and I do appreciate your input/and experience - it's no good hearing tales from solely one perspective, all views are welcome!

Lol, that's understandable. Not judging your decision at all- your baby, your entitlement in my view.
