Wendy - Hi Gloria My name is Rachel and I’am pregnant with my snecod child. I’am 34 weeks and my baby is measuring on the smaller side due to genetics on my side as well as my husbands. I had my first child young at 19 years of age and he was pronounced premature at 28 weeks I was induced by the doctor on call at the hospital.. I was never told a reason for my son’s early birth. After his birth I spent a long time not wanting to have any more children, fearing another premature labor. I was told from the doctor that my chances of having another early birth would be greater if I chose to have another child. I couldn’t figure how something that is so natural for every women could be impossible for me?? I started to research holistic ways of pregnancy, and decided to go with a midwife this time around thinking I would be able to have my natural home Birth. I have been in and out of the hospitals for the last month for Ultrasounds and stress test. These tests have been proven to be inaccurate more than twice now this month.. however my Midwife still suggests for precautionary reasons that I should still be having them for the rest of my pregnancy. She is also refusing my choice of home birth due to my baby’s lower weight.. Words can’t express how sad and disappointed I’am with the system we have in our country. I have chosen to stop taking all these tests, because I know they are inaccurate and unhealthy for my baby.. This is not at all how I wanted my pregnancy to go however I don’t know what other options I have at this point, but to have another hospital birth.. Do you have any advice for me??

Steve - she was). To make matters worse, I spoke with her after the birth to relay my angry feglenis, and at one point she said that she never stopped me from doing anything like upright pushing (she didn’t support it either) and perhaps I would have just birthed him on my own at home! Yikes! My son’s apgar score was a seven when he was born. When he was resting on my perineum, she asked to do a small epis . She performed a standard second degree cut and I also had a second degree tear up the side. I was really upset about the episiotomy. Did I really need it or just a litle more time to stretch? Should you tear and receive an episiotomy? She asked my permission, so could I have refused(I told her at the office that I did not want an epis)? I really thought she did it because he was in distress, but I now feel like I fell victim to a CNM who needed to birth my baby by protocol. What do you think? Any insight would be helpful, because she was told not to talk with me since her providers know that I was unhappy with her services. To me, that seems really terrible. All I ever wanted was evidence based care.I know I asked a lot of questions, so I truly appreciate any help you can give me.Sincerely,Karen
