Re: Denied Prenatal Care?
Many hospitals do not work with independent Midwives. It's just how it is at the moment. However, you can use a OB for back up care, you do not need to tell them you're attempting a HBAC (I don't always agree with lying, but if you need/want back up care sometimes you need to to get it). You can also just schedule with a nurse to get blood drawn, etc for testing, that's what I normally do with my homebirths (had a back up OB with ds2 who knew I was homebirthing, and odn't have a back up this time but the nearest hosptal and OBs know I'm homebirthing and are totally fine with that).
