Re: “Midwives seek autonomy in N.C.

I had my first baby in a hospital. I was well informed and declined many procedures. Even so I had to compromise on many baby never leaving me for one because the Pediatrician refused to examine my daughter in my room. I also passed out after the birth most likely due to going too long without food (I get hypoglycemic). For my second birth I had a CPM. It was a wonderful experience and I will never have another hospital birth unless I were to have a true complication. I had parallel care doing my last pregnancy. My midwife knew how big my baby was and what position he was in. My OB told me he couldn't even begin to estimate how big the baby was and couldn't even tell that he was head down until I was 38 weeks. My midwife could tell a month sooner. My homebirth was beautiful. I did wonderful! I never even got light headed and certainly didn't pass out three times as I did at my previous birth. I recovered much quicker as well. I felt great and was up and about in record time. In fact I had family tell me it was almost indecent to recover so quickly from childbirth. My CPM has made to postpartum home visits. I would like to see that from an OB! Thank you for a wonderful, very informative article.
