Re: Can't Have the Birth I Want

Not that it will make it all better - but could your current midwife recommend another midwife that does hospital deliveries in your area? I had a very relaxed and natural delivery with DD in a small community hospital with a fabulous midwife. I know it's not the same as a homebirth, but I definitely did not labor in a bed (I was in a tub), no meds (not even a hep-lock), no episiotomy, I never laid eyes on an OB, the nurses were very accustomed to natural childbirth from working with this particular group of midwives, and my baby never left my side.

Again, I know that it's not what you want, but I'm wondering if you might be able to find a provider that will support a natural delivery without all the crap that often comes with a hospital birth?
