    I would speak to your doctor/ midwife about the best course of action in the event of going into labour at home. My last labour was 30 mins from first contraction to baby out, but luckily I was already in hospital. But I had lined up 2 neighbours to come & help me if needed, & I was told that the best thing to do is call an ambulance immediately. All the best.

    Freaking love that magazine. I was just coming in to say that I'd seen that post too

    Not this Tuesday but next I will be. I have tried several times to talk to anyone and everyone, but no one will discuss until a later date.
    They won't even broach the subject until I have a growth scan etc which is happening on Friday.
    Induction is my number 1 option in my mind, I'm just hoping it is in the ob/midwives mind too :/

    My second baby was a planned home birth, but accidental free birth. I was in labour for 12 hours all up, but didn't feel like things were progressing until suddenly they were and I knew birth was imminent. I had had no show, no plug loss, and my waters only broke (exploded) one contraction before her head came out.
    It was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced in my whole life.
    It was just me and my husband there and we did it together.
    I'm pregnant with number 3 now and we're planning another home birth and I can't wait to do it again, though we do plan on having the midwives there in time this time.
    Make sure your hubby has a good knowledge of the workings of birth (even though it's not your first bub, there are things he would not necessarily know about). Set aside some towels or old sheets and blankets that could be used. And be confident in yourself and your body and your baby.
