Pregnancy Diary Week 24 Mum v Consultant Round 2
As you will know at my 16 week appointment I was told by my consultant’s registrar that a homebirth was out of the question and they would not allow it.
Although I knew, that regardless of what he said I would be having a homebirth, it did annoy me that he refused to listen to anything I had to say.
As the weeks went on I decided that I wasn’t happy with the decision, I am very fortunate that our local hospital has a fantastic team of Supervisor Midwives, who are responsible for dealing with any queries or complaints. After speaking with them, I spoke with the Clinical Manager of the Antenatal Clinic about my situation.
I am very pleased to announce that after discussions with the Consultant, and reviewing my situation, they have now decided that although they think I am slightly higher risk, they are willing to support me having a homebirth, which is wonderful.
So Wiggly is moving around lots, each of the children have felt him kick them and found it either hilarious or fascinating.
I have been looking through baby name books, but as yet have not found a name that I would consider, I may have to get an updated book, as we are still working from the one we bought before Neva was born (she is now 10!).
Heartburn is impressive and wallowing in the bath has become my favourite past time, so much that I may even consider a waterbirth this time, something I have yet to experience with any of the other births.
