- Wedding: September 2011 - Boy #1 12/2015, boy #2 02/2018
jenspadiva: 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.
Glasgowbound: 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.
livelaughlove628: What a bummer! Could you have seen another midwife?
NewfieBullet: I also feel somewhat uncomfortable with home births. I would rather be safe in case complications come up.
lovechocolate: 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.
pickledplum: 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.
JenGirl: 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 Darling Husband, but it’s not the same.
Krispi: 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.
smoocheepoo: Thanks for sharing your experience. Don’t worry, I think even the healthiest of pregnancies can go wrong.
sostobe: 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.
SadieBee: So glad things worked out well for you. It’s good to have the medical staff and equipment when needed.
kate02121: 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.
