I have had 10 children all deliverd by midwives and if you find one one you like stick with her. I havent had homebirths, all have mine have been in hospitals, but with midwife based care, so if anything were to go wron, doctor/theatre right there. not sure what your hospitals/labou/birth suites are like over there but here you can give birth anyway you like, for my last I had a waterbirth, so yes if your pregnancies are complicatin free, they are a fantastic alternative
Thanks for your feedback. I was really hoping for a birthing center vs home or a hospital but the closet facility to do that is 90 min away so thats not going to happen. The midwife I saw today only does homebirths she does not go into hospitals anymore but she does have a doctor on staff to assist with any issues that may arise.
well that sounds like good back up then, my first was born at a birth center but that was attached to a hospital.
4 years of schooling compared to 13 years....
i personally would never choose a midwife i just wouldnt feel comfortable with one... but i do have a great relationship with my OB/GYN so i feel very comfortable with him
everyone will have a different opinion on this cause the midwife experience is much more personal and less invasive... my friend loves her midwife.... its just not for me
I am going to school to be an OB/GYN tho
you should meet with an OB/GYN and a midwife so you can feel whats besto for you
I have a midwife also that works closely w the Dr. If she isint in I see the Dr. My midwife is great she delivered my daughter and I've been w her 10 years now for gyn as well.
Thanks ladies for your opinions it really is helpful.
