I am just wondering how many have gone through Midwifery instead of a Doctor.
My husband and I are expecting again, due in January, and we have an appointment for an introductory consultation with a Midwife on June 8th.
I really want to go through a midwife for this pregnancy because I really want to have a drug free delivery...with as little medical intervention as possible.
With my first birth, we ended up having an emergency cesarean after we discovered that my son was breech and had passed a stool.
Long story short, we had a horrible experience.
I am looking for opinions of the pro's and cons of proceeding with Doctor care vs. Midwifery. I am also wondering if you had bad experiences with either.
The Midwifery in my area is always very busy as well, so they can not take all of the applicants. Do you know what they will be looking for when they review the applicants?
I am a little worried. It has taken us around 2 years to conceive after our first child. We know we only want two children so this is our only chance to have a natural delivery.
