  • Hello congratulations on your pregnancy! There is nothing stopping you from planning a homebirth! As you have had preeclampsia once you have a slightly higher risk of getting it again but if all goes well then you could get your homebirth but you may have to fight for it!

    As for your placenta, did you have the injection last time? This can increase the chances of a retained placenta. the best way of helping the placenta to dethatch is to breastfeed ASAP afterbirth this releases oxytocin and contracts the uterus helping the placenta out image
  • As for having no birth partner please look at hiring a doula! if money is a problem most doulas will work for expences and if you can not afford them Doula uk have a hardship fund.A doula would be fantastic support weather you are in hospital or at home!
