- Wedding: September 2011 - Boy #1 12/2015, boy #2 02/2018
It’s nice that the birthing center is attached to the hospital. I wish we had one where I live. Hope, you get your number one choice when you deliver.
Thanks! Yup, I am 15 weeks. I am always so happy when things work out, as in your case, your baby was able to get the attention and care she needed.
What a bummer! Could you have seen another midwife?
I also feel somewhat uncomfortable with home births. I would rather be safe in case complications come up.
One of the reasons I wanted to go with the birthing center besides the excellent care is that you can deliver in water. I think next time if we have another baby, I want to try the birthing center.
Seems like you had a good experience. The midwives I will be seeing tomorrow have their own clinic, and they work closely with a group of OBs, so in case I need a c-section, they know the doctors that can deliver me, which is a really good thing. They also have good reviews.
Your plan sounds great. I thought if I stay with my current OB, I would hire a doula. No way I am going to go through this alone. Of course I have DH, but it’s not the same.
Sounds like your practice is great! I haven’t met the other OBs, which is a big deal for me, so I am not so sure I like my practice that much. Rather, the midwives clinic, you get to meet all of them and talk to them, interview them as they call it.
Thanks for sharing your experience. Don’t worry, I think even the healthiest of pregnancies can go wrong.
Seems like your midwives and the ones I will be seeing tomorrow offer very similar services. I also like the idea of going home soon after delivery given everything goes well. As far as I know, I can also opt to have an epidural if I wanted to. I am trying to go as natural as I can, but we will see how I feel then.
So glad things worked out well for you. It’s good to have the medical staff and equipment when needed.
Great nurses make a big difference. So good you had a great experience.
I love reading about everyone’s delivery arrangement experience. Tomorrow, I have a meeting with the midwives clinic, so I am excited and full of questions.
