It wasn’t unexpected. It was planned

Yes! Unplanned home birth with my second, ambulance arrived about 5 mins after she was born, delivered by her daddy, umbilical cord tied with a lace from his shoe 🤣 although it was unplanned if I was to have another I would definitely have a home birth (planned) so much more comfortable at home and I had a bad experience of a lot of unnecessary medical intervention with my first.

My waters had gone early that day and I was sent home from hospital, I was having contractions but weren’t close together, the last stage of Labour was very quick xx

What happened that made you unexpectedly have it at home? Was it everything all of a sudden?

Yes! It was absolutely empowering and wonderful. The most fantastic experience of a lifetime to share with my partner. The whole nine hours he was so supportive and fantastic. Highly recommend.

I gave birth to 3/4 of my children at home in water. My last birth my midwives didn’t make it to my birth till after I birthed the placenta and it was the best experience I had as I had to recall all of my other births and rely on my instincts.

Yup! I had my first in our apartment with a midwife. I’m planning the same this time around. It was an incredible experience!! It made our families very nervous and they would occasionally share their fears. As I got further in my pregnancy I had to ask that they stop because I needed to keep my head in the right mindset. I know the main reason why I chose homebirth - it’s the safest option for a low risk pregnancy. So their fears weren’t going to help anything.
