Hello ladies. I had my first midwife visit yesterday. We did another u/s and saw baby and it's beating heart The midwife lacked facts and information. She was opinionated and even jumped up on the deffensive when mentioning vba4c. She said they (and no one in their practice of ethical value, or anywhere else for that matter) would do a vbac unless it's after only 1 prior c-section. She tried to claim my rupture rate was severely high after 4. When I said something that did not agree with her opinion is when she jumped up from her chair and was raising her voice.....in front of my other children mind you.
There's MUCH more, including her slipping up and saying I would have to be ok with a scheduled c-section and I would be forced into one. She then corrected herself by saying "Let me refrase that. No one can be forced, but you have no other options beyond an automatic c-section. You HAVE to be ok with that and agree to it right now or you will have to find another caregiver".
Yadada. She had no facts. Refused to discuss anything. Demanded I be ok with forced c-section. All based on....tada! NOTHING.....except that I've had a c-section due to breech and then made to schedule because of that and the community hospital I delivered at not allowing vbacs.
Yeah, I'm on the look out for a good, caring, knowledgable midwife.
My weight is good. Baby is great! Everything else is wonderful. Now for that wonderful midwife that I KNOW is out there....somewhere
