With my first pregnancy I didn't pretty much everything wrong, had a horrible doctor and had an emergancy csection at 33 weeks due to severe pre-clampsia. I was never talked to about diet, exercise, etc.

We are currently TTCing #2 and I will be using the Brewer Diet - I wanted a water birth last time and wanted to do everything naturally and I had the exact opposite experience.

Has any one had the opportunity to have a Home Birth after a High Risk pregnancy?

I had what was classified as "severe Pre-E" in my first pg, and went on to have a happy healthy homebirth with #2. I did the brewer diet, did have high BP, but not Pre-E.

In fact, despite my BP readings with my first, I am pretty much convinced I did NOT have pre-E the first time.

That is so wonderful to hear!
I just found a Midwife/DR who says : "I have had much experience in dealing with helping women through that kind
of complicated pregnancy. And my whole focus is on nutrition and natural supplements when necessary."

I am so excited, now I just need to make sure that DH's insurace will cover it

Best of luck, Sarah - I hope you get the birth experience you want this time.

I did have a home birth with my second, but my first wasn't high risk - just very, very medically intervention-ed.

not the same complication(s), but i'm having a homebirth after two high-risk pg's, and technically, this one is too. i have early dilation and a history of preterm labor.
my m/w would keep a client on with pre-e, unless it was very severe. however, she has only transfered a handful of clients for it in her whole career (20+years), treats with diet and herbs.

my m/w doesn't bill directly, but is less out of pocket than a hospital birth after my insurance deductible and copays and whatnot. then after the birth she will give us the paperwork for us to send in, and we will likely get at least part of the money back. there's always a way to figure out the finances! most will also offer some sort of discount if you need it, and i've never heard of a hbmw who insisted on the full amount in one lump sum. i'm paying what i can, when i can, so long as the full amount is paid by 36 weeks. it's not so bad that way. good luck!
