I have many friends who did VBAC with no problem. Midwifes are great ๐Ÿ™‚  I have no intention of ever going the doctor route again.

Although I’ve never had a c-section done before (this is my first pregnancy) I was floored when my OB told me that due to my thyroid condition I would more than likely “need” a c-section. I felt like there was something wrong with me and found my midwife who I am EXTREMELY happy with ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m glad you were able to find her and hopefully you’ll join us on the baby boards soon ๐Ÿ™‚

@runsyellowlites: I really don’t mean to be nosey, but you hit 2 common things with me — thyroid problems and babies (future).  Can I ask why they felt you needed an emergency c-section with your son?

My first reaction was “SHE’S PREGNANT?!” and then I saw your first sentence.  Hahaha.  

Good luck to you though!!

@runsyellowlites: Thanks for the info.  That’s kinda what I thought, my doctor never said anything about a mandatory c-section – just goes to show you that no 2 doctors are alike.  I had to search around at more than a couple to get the right one.  So kudos to anyone in seek of better healthcare, but I personally cannot imagine not having my endo monitor me during a pregnancy, (how does a midwife adjust medication levels which is very common during pregnancy to have done?).  I think midwives are great, doctors have obviously more training.  How frustrating about your thyroid, I never liked pitocin, I don’t think it is good for all women.  And thyroid testing is not done enough for women, imo – very hard to get a doctor to do a full panel.  Good luck to ya

@Mrs.Firefly1: Not all doctor’s have more training. The midwife I used was recommended by my high risk ob. This was the lady he called when things got hairy. He said she had twice as much training as he did and ten times as much experience, she just never chose to get her MD when she moved to our country. I had the utmost confidence in her and my birthing experienced rocked! The high risk doc said that it wasn’t uncommon for out-of-country OB’s to go the midwife route here. If you are thinking of going the midwife route I would encourage you to look into it ๐Ÿ˜€  He handed many of his complicated cases over to her as he had to many patients to safely oversee.
