  • Re: Whining...bad experience with nurse practitioner

    This story is such a bummer to hear....so sorry that you were treated that way.  I should not, but still do expect better from NP's and CNM's.  Many providers are so careless with their words, it is unbelievable.  On a small side note....there is no reason for you to continue with yearly pap smears.  The guidelines have ...

  • Placenta Previa....

    Just in need of a virtual hug...... Had a lovely fourth time Mama come into our birth center, very early in the morning. She was clearly very close to birth.  She felt very strongly about  wanting to have her cervix checked, so I did. (I find that some ladies, despite empowering education and support during the pregnancy, really need ...

  • Re: Vitamin K Deficiency Disease

    Thanks for the reply.  Our community recently lost a newborn to verified hemmorrhagic disease.  The family had declined any vit K supplementation.  (I was not the midwife, so do not know all the details, other than it was a "pretty smooth" homebirth)  Her first symptom was a spot of blood in her nose and she passed ...

  • Vitamin K Deficiency Disease

     Hey Lovely Wise Women, I am trying to get a rough "poll"....Have any of you had a baby diagnosed with Vitamin K Deficiency Disease, aka, Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn, aka, Hemmorrhagic Disease of the Newboron?  If so, what were the presenting symptoms?  Also, how do you counsel and/or feel about Vitamin K ...

  • Re: Breech babies everywhere!

     I feel for your frustration.  We just had a run of breeches in our practice...they seem to do that, come in groups.  Recently, one of my sister-midwives was attending a birth and realized at second stage that the babe was breech.  We are blessed with amazing docs at the closest hospital and the Mama ended up with a great ...

  • Re: PPH - what to do at a home birth?

     Greetings. This is a great discussion and thanks for initiating it!  My very first thought after reading the original post was "she would not be a candidate for a homebirth", with all the complicating factors that you listed, I personally would not feel comfortable with out of hospiatal birth for this Mama.  All the ...
