Homebirth bingo

  • Dr.Professer

    “Home birth mamas are educated!” and “Babies die in the hospital too” are on there twice

      They come up a lot!

        They should still only be on the bingo card once

          being pendantic ruins the joke.

    I do trust my intuition! That’s why I’d go to the fucking hospital to give birth! My intuition is telling me that not only is my home not a sterile environment, I also don’t have the tool s or expertise necessary to deliver a baby in my house!

      True but begin too clean isn’t good as begin dirty. Also we don’t need(well expect for emergency) we don’t tools to help us deliever. Our body does it its own. Seriously I just wish that the western world realize that natural childbirth(under the watch eyes assitant doula and mid-wives who have medical training and medical supplies) can be done safe. However it should never be done at home.I know the danger of homebirth, but hospital birth are no better for a list two reasons:
      1) Having women lying on the back is the worst postition to be in.
      2)Telling her to push when her body isn’t ready or vice versa.
      The hospital need to start giving women some choices and freedom.

    What happens to laboring mums when a natural calamity like Nepal earthquake strikes? Let me guess , no hospitals to save the day!

    • Who?

      Exactly, and that is tragic and catastrophic. Why anyone in their right mind would want to take themselves out of safe, expert high quality care and put themselves into the equivalent of a disaster zone for the birth of their child is a mystery to me.

    I know this is old but if anybody stumbles on it the way I did, I want to put my two cents in — I was this Bingo card. TO A TEE. 100%, all of those things came out of my mouth during my pregnancy.

    And then my baby had IUGR which we didn’t catch until 33 weeks because I didn’t have an anatomy scan — you know, because we didn’t want to know the gender and my fundal height was perfect, so who cares about all that diagnostic information?? — and then I had a super fast onset pre-eclampsia at 35 weeks.

    Even though I had pre-e, CLEARLY had it based on the swelling and BP symptoms, my midwives sent me over an hour away to a naturopath to get some herbs to lower my blood pressure so I could still have an out of hospital birth. Since my blood pressure wasn’t going down, I was sent to the hospital to do another BPP and non-stress test, and my pre-eclampsia was shutting my kidneys down.

    I was so brainwashed, I begged them not to induce me at almost 36 weeks. My OB finally had to drop the bomb that I wasn’t leaving the hospital because if I did, I would lose my baby. It was dead serious. He wanted to section me to be safe, but I continued to refuse and insisted that he let me try to deliver her naturally.

    I labored 9 hours while my baby had late-decelerations. I begged them to let me try more, but they insisted that I was going to start having seizures any moment and my baby wasn’t tolerating labor. I finally agreed.

    My daughter was only 4lbs at birth (she quickly lost the extra fluid and came down to 3lbs 11oz within a couple days) and she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck twice. I was having such terrible tremors that I couldn’t hold her. I was terrified every moment of my birth because I hadn’t researched anything to do with emergencies. I was brought out and was a baby’s breath away from seizing because of how serious my pre-e was.

    Looking back, I’m so ashamed that I resisted so hard doing exactly what my child needed because I was so completely taken by the home-birth craziness. My daughter could have died. This bingo is lighthearted, but I think people do need to understand that things can get very serious, very quickly, and we are so fortunate to have hospitals available that will cater to so many needs, while still being able to quickly address hazards.

    When I told my OB that I wanted everything natural, he looked me in the face and said, “Nature is cruel. If we left everything up to nature, your husband would be walking out of here without you, and without a baby.” That was the slap in the face that I needed. I hope other mamas never have to go through what I went through.

      I think it’s very brave of you to speak up about this. Glad you and your baby are safe.

      Thank you for your story. It’s very powerful for those who are considering homebirth.

      To add what others have said, that is very heart-wrenching.
