Tomorrow afternoon is my first OB/GYN visit since having Amelia. And I'm soooo not looking forward to it. For the obvious reasons, of course, but also for the confession I'll have to make! I just really don't want to get into a debate with him about having my baby at home, you know?

Any BTDT mamas - how was your first visit after your home birth?

Aw good luck Kristin! I hope you don't need it though. Obviously I'm not a BTDT but if it were me I'd just work on not letting him get a negative word in. Just cut him off if it sounds like he's starting to give you crap.

lol well at least that's one worry you don't need anymore! I'd feel so relieved. I think my OB wanted to see me about now too, 2 weeks and 6 weeks, I think? Oh well I just plain don't feel like going in.. I have to get up too early to go see her!

I see my midwife for well woman stuff so I've never had to worry about an OB having an issue with my homebirths.

I saw my regular doc last week for something else and I mentioned to her that I'd had a home birth. She looked a bit surprised but didn't say a word about it. I thought that was cool. It made me like her more.

I don't use an OB/GYN for anything either. My family doctor takes care of that stuff- and attends my homebirths too.

Hmm, I don't even know if my midwife does well woman stuff...I'll have to ask her. I've pretty much kept with the OB religiously because I have a family history of ovarian cancer and know that one is hard to detect. My dad's mom died in her early 50s and I don't want to... But he told me that since it was on dad's side of the family that I have nothing to worry about...

Anyway. He was completely fine with the home birth. He asked if I had had prenatal and postnatal care (of course) and then pretty much said 'good for you for making an informed decision'!
