With my first homebirth (5th baby) I called my mom to let her know I was in labor, and she made a last-ditch effort to talk me into going to the hospital. When I lost Hope, I didn't call anybody until after I delivered her, even though it took three days. With Mary we called after she was born, mostly because I started labor in the middle of the night and delivered very quickly.

I don't plan to call anybody this time around until after baby is born- the morning after if I have another night-time delivery.
