I’m 6 weeks pregnant with baby number 2. Obviously early days yet but I didn’t have a great birth experience last time and I’d like this one to be better. Essentially last time I was induced at 37+6, and owing to a very busy labour ward they kept slowing things down and then trying to speed them up again. I ended up on syntocinin in one hand, a sliding scale in the other, monitor on the bump and no movement allowed. If I hadn’t been T1D I would have been aiming for plenty of movement and a birthing pool, so this was far from where I wanted to be. Ended up tearing quite badly and losing a lot of blood. Just interested to know if anyone else with T1D has managed to get a birthing pool or at least avoided so many of the movement restrictions?
