Before you hire a midwife, be sure to interview several carefully. Take your time reviewing their history, call up their references, have a list of questions handy, research the legal issues in your state and ask the midwife for proof of her certification.
WELL I WISH I DID JOIN THIS AS A MOM, BUT THINGS ARE DIFFERENT FOR ME NOW. I REALLY DO GET PREGNANT, EVERYTIME WE TRY BUT I DONT USUALLY STAY SO FOR LONG. I DO HAVE A CONVICTION IN MY HEART THAT I WILL STAY PREGNANT THIS TIME FOR THE DURATION AND HAVE MY BUEATIFUL BABY. MY HUSBAND CANT WAIT TO CARRY HIS CHILD AND I AM BESIDE MYSELF AS WELL. WE TRUST GOD FOR A STAY POWER. I JUST NEED ADVICE FROM MOMS AND MOMS TO BE ON HOW I SHOULD GO ABOUT STAYING PREGNANT. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ANSWER MY QUESTION ON HOW TO STAY PREGNANT AND WHAT I OUGHT TO DO TO KEEP FIT.

Dear Mr. Dad,
It seems that every one of my wife's friends have had c-section deliveries. She's about a month away from her due date and we're both worried that she's going to have a c-section too. The childbirth preparation class we took didn't spend a lot of time on c-sections. In case it happens, what can I expect and what can I do to stay involved?
My husband doesn't think he can handle being in the room when I have the baby. Pain is not something that he does well with and the sight of blood makes him freak. Is it hopeless to think that he can overcome this?
My family and friends all are giving us both a hard time about this as otherwise they view him being "unsupportive." I’d like to give him the benefit of a doubt as this is the way he's been as long as I've known him (10 years!)
