Probably because the cant fund a dr at every homebirth. I should re phrase, I'm sure they are competent just not as competent at someone who specializes in children's health. But hey I am pro- choice do whatever floats your boat but doesn't mean I have to agree with it. Ok thats it's I'm done arguing! Enjoy your day

I think her term "birthzilla" is hilarious!
I'm proud to be what she would consider a " birthzilla".
I am proud that I armed myself with knowledge and insight in what was to me the most empowering amazing experience I will ever know.
I think her suggestion that " birthzillas" put their plan before the health of themselves or their baby is extremely insulting. No woman would do that, I don't care what anyone says.
I'm sorry but this whole idea of " who cares how the baby comes out" is so wrong in my opinion.
I care, I love to hear others birth experiences whether they are bad or great because it helps me understand how different things can be. I want to hear about choices women have made whether it be about their placenta or their homebirth or their c/s.
It opens my mind to the world and what's wrong with that? Nothing!

lost half my post.
During my vbac I also had to wait for a birthing suite and was stuck in emergency, no monitoring, no canulas, I had nothing they kept harping on about that was so detrimental to a vbac, apparently being short staff meant I was now safe? It's a joke. All the theatres were full, had I had a rupture what would have happened? I made it into the birthing suite when I started to push.
I've had 2 babies and never had a paed look over them? Even when my ds had a high fever and was in the nursery for a while. midwives look over the babies, peads aren't present at all births, thats ridiculous.
And people need to stop calling me a birthzilla cause its shi!tting me up the wall and I'll start with my own names.....

DS had a doctor/paed check him over when he was 3 days old. I don't see not having a paed at home as a reason against homebirth. Mothers can leave the house you know

Can I just say - anyone who thinks natural labour instantly destroys their lady bits & they are happy to have avoided it (oh and their husband lol of course how could I forget) is a bit of a dumb-as$. It's sad that women see birth as a competition. I agree OP - healthy baby & mother is most important.
