Home Birth after B2B 1st baby and episiotomy...
hope someone can help me! I am 12 weeks pregnant with my second and would love a home birth, both my sisters have had them and really loved them. However, first delivery was a bit tricky and had a rubbish midwife which i don't think helped! Basically I got to 10 cms in birth pool, midwife said waters had gone (didn't check) and said i could push away... 2 hours later nothing was happening so she checked me and said she didn't realise baby was back to back and I was pushing onto my cervix and making it swell up. ended up being transferred to a different hospital where they checked me and said waters hadn't gone. They broke them for me, baby twisted round and with an episiotomy as I was so exhausted at this point i pushed him out!
Can you still have a home birth if you have had an episiotomy? i'm worried this baby will be back to back too, anyone delivered a back to back baby at home? please help! I'd love to do this but don't want to put baby at risk obviously!
