So we met with the midwife last week and I was surprised to learn that it's illegal in Montana for a midwife to deliver twins. Is this normal for most states? Twins do run in my family and she said if I happen to have twins she will work with me on nutrition to get to full term with them and has a couple OB's at the hospital that happily take on natural twin births. At least I have that if it comes to it.
I told her about my issues with breast feeding, I don't believe my breasts have enough tissue because when I'm engorged I can feel only 3-4 pockets of milk on my breasts. She said she'll work with me and get some aggressive herbs (something stronger than Fenugreek) to increase the amount I produce in the tissue I do have. This is such a 180 from my OB just shrugging when I broached the subject with my second pregnancy.
We'll file through my insurance and see if it covers anything. Even if they don't she charges $3500 and that's less than what I paid out of pocket for Brodie's birth so it's OK with us. What have you ladies paid for a midwife?
We're excited and have our first appointment January 4th. I have to do a food diary so hopefully that will get me on track with healthier food choices.
