Quoting Will☮Creedence:" Yeah you should definitely look into a midwife over an OB either way. You should be able to come away saying "Wow that was the best experience I've ever had!!" rather than "it was okay"."
Quoting Latoshia:" Oh wow thank you, I didn't know this. I have no problem speaking up either Lol. And of course I am ... [snip!] ... wise to my baby. I would love a good bith plan, but I would also understand that doctor knows best. Thank you for telling me."
Quoting Latoshia:" I agree. You are right. A lot of doctors these days could give a smurf less. And that's kind of how i ... [snip!] ... things with me if i give him a weird look about someting he says. Lol. I am hoping that this time things are much better."
Quoting Will☮Creedence:" That's NOT true. The hospitals around here don't even have tubs... So you really don't have a choice."
Quoting someonesangel:" I didn't mean every hospital, there is a little research involved, some hospitals don't have a birthing ... [snip!] ... met, is what I am trying to say. I was referring to things like meds, pushed c sections/ and being able to walk around."
Quoting Will☮Creedence:" Believe me when you're in tons of pain and in labor, you're much easier to persuade. At least I was. ... [snip!] ... me pitocin! I said hell no and before I knew it I was pushing my son out. They will do anything to get more money out of you."
Quoting someonesangel:" I think it has to do with a persons willpower I suppose. I guess if you want to make sure your med free ... [snip!] ... center on a hospital. If I need hospital intervention, it's there but if not I am completely on my own with how I want it."
Quoting Will☮Creedence:" I have extremely strong will power but nothing can prepare you for labor. I have heard so many girls ... [snip!] ... 9 out of 10 times you won't even be able to think straight and will say ok to anything, no matter what your willpower is."
Quoting Will☮Creedence:" <blockquote><b>Quoting someonesangel:</b>" Well like every pregnancy, every woman ... [snip!] ... little pain. Willpower varies."</blockquote> Willpower has nothing to do with how long or pain free your labor is."
Quoting Latoshia:" I am just curious if anyone knew anything about if different hospitals offer multiple choices on how ... [snip!] ... something the doctor or hospital had to agree to or if you had to use a midwife or something to have the options. Any one know?"
