Can anyone advise me on what I would need for one?

Had a very traumatic delivery with my 1st child, and my 2nd was induced for medical reasons, which was a fantastic birth, 94 mins of labour in total

But I would like to have a home birth, and I am finding it very difficult to find any unformation on it.

I wish I could help you.... I am not familiar with the HB atmosphere in the UK. I imagine you could start with an internet search, or even talk to some local midwives if they know anyone? Please keep us posted and feel free to jump in on the board! We love having new faces!!

i just had a homebirth in the UK. We paid for an independent midwife as we wanted to be certain we had the same MW thru my antenatal visits at the birth and to be guaranteed, unless emergency, we'd have a homebrth. you can have a homebirth thru the NHS but htere's no guarantee you'll have the same MW throughout your care and the birth or that a MW would be available when you are in labor to come to your home.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
