Re: Denied Prenatal Care?

I know it's not what you want to hear, but in a world full of crazy litigious people, the OB (and the practice) needs to protect himself. He sees your plan as medically risky and if he provided prenatal care like you wanted and (God forbid) anything were to go wrong during your HBAC, you could feasibly sue him. And that's a risk he's (understandably) not willing to take.

Can your midwife perhaps help refer you to a clinic where you could receive any prenatal testing that you need/want that she doesn't provide?
