I'm planning a home water birth for any day now with pool downstairs and toilet upstairs. I haven't really given it much thought, but I suppose i'm just going to have to manage, or wee in the pool if I have to! Lou x
When I had DS I went to the loo so much, with DD hardly at all. You may not need it, my NCT teacher said that going up and down stairs sideways makes your hips wiggle which can help baby's head to come down, and the bucket is always a option.
Thanks everyone! I'm due in 5days so not sure trying to hire a commode is a good idea as it's bound to be too late! But a bucket sounds like a very good idea if it all becomes too much! Don't think our floors upstairs would take the weight of the pool-plus mw told us not to (think for that reason!)
I hope the birth is short so it isn't too much of an issue
