Dh likes to read some of the topics here at JM with me, he feels like he can learn a lot about things hearing it from a woman's perspective. Last night we were reading in the natural child birth stories sub forum here and he was floored to say the least. He says that he wishes that he knew so much more about childbirth because he really would love to have the experience of an unassisted or assisted home birth with me. He just doesn't know if he would be able to handle it without a midwife and there are no midwives any where near where I live, not to mention I couldn't afford one even if I didn't have to pay her travel expenses to get her here. I guess a midwife is just completely out of the question for now. But he plans on not blinking an eye through the hospital birth this time and learning everything that he possible can because when we have our next little munchkin after this pregnancy he wants to do everything he can to just stay home and do things OUR WAY. Regardless of how far away this may be, it was still a very emotional and warming experience to make this decision with him. I never thought in a million years just reading some stories would have an impact like that on him. Geeze, I really love him!

Awwwwwww!

My DH was the same way, which was quite a surprise to me. We did end up finding a midwife who would come here to do it and although were not filing insurance with it - she worked it out with us where we could afford it. Shes about an hour and a half away though.

Are there no birthing centers there either?

Btw - look into bradley classes to prepare for natural childbirth in the hospital

Nope, no birthing centers.. Just Salina Regional Hospital. The closest Midwife is about 3 hours away!
I started my Bradley Classes last Sunday, and DH and I LOVE the instructor!

Glad to hear you started the Bradley classes!

Does your Bradley instructor have any suggestions since shes a little more familiar with the area (hopefullY)?

I brought the midwife thing up to my Bradley Method teacher, and she says that all of her past students who had a midwife had to have them travel from Topeka, Ks... which is pretty far from here. Aparently it is not a very popular thing around here. Because it would be so expensive to pay travel expences (and just to pay her right now, lol) it doesnt look like we would be able to do it right now. I dunno... maybe something will come up though!

You can also did what I did and research unassisted home birthing. There are lots of books to read. One I wish I would have had time to read was called Emergency Childbirth, and it goes over each thing that could go wrong and how to handle the situation.
