Home Birth Hertfordshire?

Question by Bunnyfluff: Home Birth Hertfordshire?
Hi there, I was wondering if anyone has had a home birth in the Hertfordshire area. I am 6 weeks pregnant and told by my GP that although they will support a home birth they would not recommend it for my first baby. I told my GP I appreciated his concerns and it is a decision I have come to after a lot of thought and investigation.

I’m dreading seeing my midwife on 24 May as I’m sure she will try and talk me out of it. Has anyone had any experience of this in the area???

Best answer:

Answer by krazypuddykat
If you’re healthy throughout you pregnancy, without having any hypertension, preclampsia, or any other concerns that your midwife may have, I don’t see why you couldn’t have your baby at home. Just make sure this is really what you want, because if you have any doubts, you may end up getting tensed up and make delivery complicated

What Treatment Works to Stop Addiction? Former Addicts Answers Please…?

Question by Clover: What treatment works to stop addiction? Former addicts answers please…?
I know that there are lots of theories out there.

Is there any hope? Or is one plan just as likely to fail as all others?

My son is addicted. His drug of choice is DXM. He’ll take anything though…and I mean anything if he thinks it will get him high.
He’s living in our home and we wanted to allow him time to try and beat this on his own but it’s not happening. He steals our cars, our money, our medicines, and he set up a camera to get the combination in order to get into our safe and take what was there. I’m tired of this new life I live.
I love him and don’t want to kick him to the streets but he’s not willing to go get help.
