I have always wanted a waterbirth but had obstacles in the past ($$, insurance, distance to the birth center...) Well, it seems the stars have aligned to bring me the opportunity to have a waterbirth with this LO!
In my search for a doula, I talked to a doula who planted the idea in my head that I would be a great candidate for a waterbirth. So, I did some research. There is a birth center 30 minutes from me. The bonus is...the CNM who owns the birth center, also works with my OB and sees patients out of his Santa Monica office! I don't believe in coiincidences...this opportunity must be for me!
I am going to the birth center on Thursday for a tour and to discuss transferring my care to the CNM while still seeing my Peri all in the same office building!
Wow, I can't believe I just may get the water birth I have always wanted!
