    Default Aw, my best friend... :)

    nak

    Switched care to the birthing center where emansmom birthed!! I'm so excited for (and jealous of) her!!!

    For her first birth she had a hospital birth- her water broke (barely a trickle), but she wasn't having contractions....so she ended up on pitocin, and getting an epidural that I believe never really worked. It was one of those experiences that wasn't bad, but wasn't really good.

    She came to visit this weekend and was telling me that with her previous OB her blood pressure was always high (like 140/90) and that with the midwife now at her last appt it was 110/70! Her midwife joked and said, "You're cured!"

    I'm just so excited for her and wanted to share!!!!

    That's wonderful! I love hearing about women finding their way to such better birthing situations! That BP thing is pretty telling...

    that's awesome for her! love that about the BP! Her first birth sounds similar to mine except that my epidural did work.

    that is great. A lot of people have "white coat syndrome". Doctors just make them nervous. I hope she has a wonderful birth!!
