I am doing the hands/knees, sitting forwards, walking, cycling... I even have a birthing ball thanks to jinty. We'll just have to see if she co-operates -- I gather there's only about a 50% success rate for this sort of thing.

I chose to have a hospital midwife led birth

Unfortunately the midwife-led ward at the JR has exactly the same criteria as the midwives have for home birth -- ie if my iron drops below the magic number so I'm deemed too high-risk for a home birth, I won't be allowed to deliver in the midwife-led ward either.

I'm really glad you had such a positive experience with hospitals, but personally I'd much rather stay at home.

Child didn't get in position until he was damn well good and ready. Can't think where that attitude came from. The GP's midwives were all quite good about nudging the Critter about the last two weeks before delivery, though.

Lots here in your circle of concern, less within your circle of influence, though.

She has time to shifty about. It'll be fine.
