There is a serious lack of options in my area and it is driving me fair up the wall! Want a yoga class that is suitable for pregnancy? Cant find one. Want to try out hypnobirthing? Tough luck, they dont teach it in the area. Want a birth place option other than the hospital? Well be prepared for a long search cause there is no birth center and Independent Midwives are extremely thin on the ground. Why is regular uncomplicated birth so difficult to arrange? It is seriously very very frustrating! How did I get stuck in such a conservative area? The day the human race stops being so afraid of birth and willing to accept alternatives, the better it will be for everyone. Anyway. Vent over, I just needed to get that out.

A standard yoga class should be able to accommodate a pregnant woman. There are just some poses that might need adjusting or doing something different.
Re hypnobirthing, I would have love to have taken a course when preg with DD but working ful ltime and having another child to attend didn't make it possible. I bought a book to read and even only doing that helped enormously.
I can't help you with homebirth buy someone in that section of the forum may be able to offer better advice.
I hope you find some solutions soon!!

Homebirth is the option I am investigating. Until recently there have been no midwives in the area. Now there are exactly two. I feel lucky to have found them really since the hospital is a teaching hospital which gets confused if u ask for options other than what they are used to.
