Hjemmefødsel – det fik vi brug for

Efter at have set de første tre afsnit af TV2’s dokumentar Føde godt – hjemme bedst blev jeg motiveret til at få det her indlæg gjort færdigt. Også for at vi kan komme videre fra alt det her fødsels-halløj. Måske kommer der en fødselsberetning senere, den er skrevet, men jeg synes det er lidt for privat at dele. Det er åbenbart ret moderne at føde hjemme, men jeg har jo altid vidst jeg var hipster!

Som den opmærksomme læser nok ved, planlagde jeg at føde lillesøster hjemme. Fødslen gik godt, og jeg er meget lettet og tilfreds. Man kan godt sige at jeg fik min drømmefødsel, selvom jeg gerne ville være sluppet for at blive overflyttet bagefter (pga. syning og blodsukkermåling). Men selve fødslen foregik her, stille og roligt og meget nemmere end før, ikke fordi det gik hurtigere eller var mindre smertefuldt, men jeg kunne bedre håndtere det. En af de vigtigste ting for mig var at trække mig ind i mig selv, og have så lidt indblanding fra andre som muligt. Derfor ringede vi til jordemoderen i “sidste øjeblik”, og hun nåede kun at være her halvanden time før baby var ude. Det var virkelig dejligt at kunne klare det meste selv. Måske kommer der en fødselsberetning her på bloggen. Jeg har skrevet den, men synes det er lidt for privat. Jeg havde jo ikke lavet en decideret liste over hvad vi skulle bruge til hjemmefødslen, men skrev dette indlæg og nu vil jeg dele mine erfaringer omkring, hvad vi egentligt fik brug for:

  • Håndklæder 5 store, 4 små – vi havde en hel sæk med gamle håndklæder, men brugte langt fra allesammen. De store blev brugt til afdækning, tror jeg, men kan ikke huske det. De små blev varmet i ovnen og brugt til aftørring af baby og til at pakke baby ind i. Da hun havde lidt vejrtrækningsbesvær og ikke måtte blive kold, brugte vi en del, da de skulle skiftes når de var blevet våde.

 

  • Sugende stykker – mange! – I hjemmefødselspakken fra hospitalet får man nogle blå sugende underlag, som vi brugte rigtigt mange af. Det er blandt andet til at opsamle blod. Heldigvis havde vi en del fra sidste hjemmefødsel, og vi brugte allesammen.

 

  • En hue til baby eller flere – vi havde frabedt os hue, og faktisk er det ikke noget de normalt bruger på Nordsjællands Hospital, men fordi baby var blå da hun kom ud, skulle hun have en på for at holde varmen, og når den var våd skulle den skiftes. Så det kan være godt at have et par huer inden for rækkevidde. Vi havde ikke lagt nogle frem, så der skulle rodes lidt i skuffer, det kunne være rart at have haft dem lige ved hånden.

 

  • Et stort fad + klude – Jordemoderen skal bruge et stort fad med varmt vand og nogle klude til de varme klude, som hun lægger på mellemkødet under pressefasen. Man kan enten lægge nogle vaskeklude frem eller man kan bruge de engangsklude, der er i hjemmefødselspakken. Vi havde lagt klude frem, men ikke en skål.

 

  • En skål / pose til moderkagen – man skal have noget at lægge moderkagen i når den kommer ud. Det kan fx være en stor skål (de kan fylde sådan nogle, min moderkage vejede 1,1 kg) – eller en plastikpose. Vi puttede den i en pose og så direkte i fryseren, da vi ønskede at gemme den og grave den ned i forbindelse med lillesøsters navngivningsfest. Vi plantede et æbletræ ovenpå Valdemars moderkage, men da der ikke er plads til flere træer i haven, graver vi lillesøsters moderkage ned ved siden af.

 

  • Vådliggerlagen, et stort eller mindre stykker – Som forberedelse til min første fødsel havde vi købt et kæmpe vådliggerlagen (fås i metermål i fx JYSK), som vi afdækkede sengen med og bagefter klippede op i stykker til at bruge i vugge, barnevogn og tremmeseng. Denne gang havde vi ikke afdækket sengen, fordi jeg havde regnet med at føde i sofaen, men da først jeg havde lagt mig derind, kunne jeg ikke overskue at flytte mig.

 

  • 2 store affaldssække – en til affald og en til vasketøj (der er én i hjemmefødselspakken)

 

  • En lille affaldspose/spand – kunne være dejligt for jordemoderen at have ved hånden til mindre stykker affald, som hun skal af med under fødslen.

 

  • Ammepude – jeg brugte min ammepude til at ligge og slappe af op ad mellem veerne og efter baby var født var den god at bruge som hovedpude. Den kan også være god at lægge ansigtet på, hvis man ligger i knæ-albue-leje (jeg brugte en juniordyne).

 

  • Saftevand – man bliver tørstig! Under min første fødsel kunne jeg slet ikke drikke noget, men denne gang var det rart at have lidt. Jeg havde selv blandet et stort glas (sådan et glas der havde været urtekram-mosede tomater i) tranebærssaft, som jeg drak lidt af under fødslen.

 

  • Chokolade – I nedtrængningsfasen er det normalt at både moderen og livmoderen bliver trætte, fordi man har brugt næsten al sin energi. Her møder nogle fødende muren. Da min jordemoder begyndte at snakke om, at her gik fødslen ofte i stå, tænkte jeg nej, jeg ville gøre alt for ikke at gå i stå som sidste gang. Jordemoderen sagde at det var en god idé at spise et stykke chokolade for at få noget energi, så det gjorde jeg, selvom jeg ikke havde meget lyst, og det virkede.

 

  • Et par gode hårelastikker – man tænker det er en lille detalje, men det kan være ret vigtigt (hvis man har langt hår). Da jeg skulle føde ejede jeg kun én hårelastik, som var ret slap i det, så jeg måtte hele tiden sætte min knold om, det var virkelig frustrerende. Den studerende kommenterede vist også på at mit hår hang ned i ansigtet, men jeg kunne ikke gøre noget ved det. Her kunne jeg evt. have bedt en om hjælp til at sætte mit hår eller holde det, men næste gang vil jeg i hvert fald have nogle flere elastikker.

 

  • Fødselstaske – klog af skade havde jeg denne gang sørget for at pakke en fødselstaske. Selvom fødslen foregik hjemme, fik vi alligevel brug for den, da vi skulle overflyttes bagefter. Her var det rart at det hele var pakket, så jeg ikke skulle tænke på det i situationen. Det var så varmt, at jeg nærmest tog nøgen afsted, så det var godt at have en taske med lidt tøj til mig også.

 

  • En madpakke – i forlængelse af fødselstasken skulle vi have pakket en madpakke på forhånd, men det tænker man jo ikke på. Når man bliver overflyttet til hospitalet er det ikke sikkert der er noget mad. Vi kom lige til spisetid, men eftersom vi er veganere, kunne vi ikke få noget. Lasse havde hurtigt smidt et par boller i tasken, men det havde været rart med en madpakke. Så lav en madpakke, man kan altid spise den senere, selv hvis man bliver hjemme.

 

  • Kamera (og evt. kameramand/dame) – det er fedt at have billeder fra fødslen, synes jeg! Desværre har vi ikke ret mange fra lillesøsters fødsel. Til Valdemars fødsel havde jeg en veninde med til at tage billeder, og det blev virkelig godt. Denne gang havde jeg dog valgt det fra, fordi jeg ville have så få mennesker til stede som muligt.

 

  • En ovn – til at varme håndklæder i. Det har de fleste nok derhjemme. Men husk at slukke den bagefter! Vi glemte at slukke den da vi tog afsted, ikke smart.. heldigvis stod den kun på 50 grader.

 

  • Babydyne – det er godt at have babydynen indenfor rækkevidde, især hvis baby kommer ud og er blå og skal varmes hurtigt op.

 

  • Playliste og afspilnings-device – jeg havde lavet en playliste på forhånd i spotify og brugte en iPad til at afspille den på. Ved min første fødsel hørte jeg slet ikke musik, men denne gang synes jeg det var godt.

 

  • Mad og drikke til bagefter – jeg har altid sagt jeg ville have champagne når jeg havde født, men denne gang havde vi købt en æblemost med brus fra Aarstiderne i stedet for til at drikke bagefter. Mad havde vi ikke forberedt, så det blev samosaer fra fryseren, det var også dejligt. Nogle laver også fødselsdagsboller.

Man skal egentligt også have mad til jordemoderen, men vores ville ikke have noget. En kande vand og nogle glas til jordemoderen ville også have været godt at stille frem, da det var en meget varm dag. Vi nåede hverken det ene eller det andet, da de var her så kort tid og havde travlt den tid, de var her. Normalt skal man også have et arbejdsbord og en stol til jordemoderen, det havde vi heller ikke, da det spontant blev i soveværelset i stedet for i stuen. Jeg havde lidt ondt af jordemødrene, der måtte sidde på hug ved siden af sengen, men det gik.

Vi har ikke ret mange stemningsbilleder, men her kan man fornemme setup’et
