California has a one year period in which to do it. It took me 350 days to get it done. Actually, it only took a week, but I put it off very nicely for 343 days. Without a midwife, I was on my own on this one. (the only disadvantage I see in having an unassisted birth) I had Emma’s done in the first 10 days, but for Chloe I put it off till the last minute (or at least the last month…). But, now it isn’t hanging over my head anymore. I did it. Chloe has a birth certificate. It’s official. She was born.
I suspected as much.
