I am wondering if any of you on here have had any experience with a home birth abroad? My husband, DS, and I are currently living in Chengdu, China, and we just found out that I am four weeks pregnant with #2. I had been very much hoping for a home birth with our second child, but now I am coming up short when it comes to finding viable options for midwives/homebirth attendants. I really don't think that there are any practicing in the whole of China. I would be interested in hearing any birth stories or advice from others of you who may have dealt with a situation like this, and how you overcame the logistical hurdles. TIA!!

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

I don't have any experience, but I'd recommend you send a PM to a woman here on JM named Angela who goes by the username "soimarriedanerd." I am pretty sure she homebirthed, though she came back to the US to do it, but her husband travels all over the world for a living and she spent most of her pregnancy in many different countries and may have some insight for you or help you get pointed in the right direction. I hope you are able to find the information you need.
