There are some other things but that is what is coming to mind at the moment. Good luck mama. I hope that it is a good fit for you.
Wow...thank you!! I wouldn't have though of half of that. My mind shut off about 3 weeks ago during the pregnancy. Lol. There are only 2 local birth centers and the one is already full so I hope everything goes well with them tomorrow. I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. On one side I have drs who will push epidurals etc...and on the other side I have the midwife. So if we don't like them I'm not sure what I'll do.
