Quoting Masturkate TTC:" And I don't think you are being demanding at all. If you're birthing at MV's L&D having intermittent ... [snip!] ... she must be right!" and get scared and start pressuring the mom as well. I have known so many people who've experienced this :/"
I'm delivering at Kettering and I've never had a birth plan or natural birth there so I'm not sure how they are.
I just talked to my frined, who is a L&D nurse at another hospital and she said "can I ask you a question? why don't you just hire a midwife and deliver at home???"
Really?!?!?? But then she went on to ask if I wanted her in my delivery room to be my voice :/
Now I'm just annoyed! I'm not opposed to being monitored, I just don't want to be hooked upo the WHOLE time! I don't want to be forced to push, I want to push when I feel like I have to push!
I have thought about having her in my room because I know she would know more then Eric or I If the nurses are using scare tactics, but I will also have Katie(videoing) and Nicole (photos) in the room so I thought I would have some backbonefrom them but after talking to Nicole and her saying "well If you go in in active labor you HAVE to be hooked up, their going to be bitches to you blah blah blah" I'm not sure anyone wll be my voice
I guess I have to work on Eric and maybe him taking these Hypnobirthing classes with me will help.
