  • Midwife in South Dakota

    Hey there! I just found out I am expecting my second child, let me tell you a little about my hospital experience with my daughter; we arrived at the hospital around 3 am, the dr's let me labor for 2 hours, during which I was allowed to go into the bathtub for short periods of time but, then my doctor...

  • VBAC concern

    Hi, long story short: over five years ago I had a c-section with my son. Then this past September, I went to my first ultrasound only to find out there was no heartbeat and the fetus had stopped developing around 7 or 8 weeks. My doctor gave me misoprostal to bring on the miscarriage as I had no symptoms...

  • Wondering if VBAC is a possibility for me

    Hi, I'm not a midwife, but I'm looking for some advice to assess whether a VBAC would be a viable option for me. I had a c-cection with my first child. My water broke at roughly 40 wks, but labor never started. As I knew that I was group B strep positive, I went to the hospital to begin antibiotics...

  • Transverse twice?

    I have a friend that is 36 weeks with her second child and yesterday was told she would have to schedule a c-section due to this baby being transverse. Her first child was transverse as well and had to have a c-section with that baby also. She has been going to the same OB & they do not do any manual...
  • Re: video of a FL. doc on vbac

    HMMM, ZoeysMom, really the Midwife said that to you? When I look around my BF support group, I have a very hard time believing that only one in three ~could~ deliver vaginally. Makes me sad when I hear women say.... "I had to have a c-section" and discuss their births....very few were "allowed"...

  • Re: I need Information

    Hi JLangley I would like to encourage you to plan a physiologically normal birth, and only accept surgery if there is a valid reason at the time. The main issue to check prior to making that decision is that the baby's placenta is clear of the scars in your womb's lower segment. It sounds to...

  • Re: I need Information

    The size of the woman does NOT reflect how she will birth. NO NO NO NO NO I've had women your size in my practice deliver 8 to 10lb babies. Vaginally. It definitely sounds like there was something up with your baby's position, your position (likely on your back or sitting on your tailbone) or...

  • Re: Dear Pres. Obama---want to save millions in obstetrics?

    I'm a bit wary of "midwifery model of care" these days because it can mean midwives getting absorbed by the medical system and practising exactly the same way as the drs. I would like to see registered midwives in my province (BC, Canada) doing my four suggestions above. Unfortunately,...

  • Dear Pres. Obama---want to save millions in obstetrics?

    February 11, 2009 Ways to save millions of tax dollars in obstetrics Seeing that there is a world wide quest for governments to save money right now, I am putting my mind to ways that I would cut waste if I were in charge of the medical budget. I invite you to add to this list. Just as the Wall Street...
