Home birth

Having PGP should not prevent you from having your baby at home. In fact, if you are very immobile, it can be much easier to be in a familiar place, with any equipment you need available without having to ask for it. You also have all the normal benefits of home birth, such as not splitting up your family on your first night and having your partner with you to help instead of being sent home when visiting time ends.

You can hire a pool for a home birth (and use this as pain relief in the days before you go into labour) or just give birth on dry land, and where you like within your house.
