I've emailed both of them. I hope one of them answers. It never occurred to me how much nicer it would be to have a FARM midwife than a city midwife until I started looking for one. City midwives see giving birth way out in the middle of nowhere, on a farm a little differently probably than a midwife who lives on a farm, out in the middle of nowhere. grin. And they both have a passel of kids which is kinda reassuring. anywho...... gotta find a midwife one way or another. *fingers crossed*
To be honest, I've fantasized about just walking out into the bull pen (now vacant) where the old homestead house USED to be and just coming back with a baby. BUT thats just my pipe dream. Actually this will be a HBAC for me. I was lied into two unneeded c sections, so I feel like I ought to have a midwife, at least this time, to be sure everything's how it's supposed to be. Plus we're under the added stress of being watched by cps. One of Evan's friend's wife got ----ed off at me (she called my house and Evan's work screaming at us and we hung up, because an adult should know better) and she called CPS and made up a whole bunch of crap, which was taken as gospel (Evan was really surprised to hear that I shot him. You THINK that would be an easy one to disprove. Problem is they wont look at a doctor's findings. shrug). WE got the investigator who hates home schooling and people with different belief systems (said Katie was out of touch with reality because she believes in ghosts.) So Iâm very worried about having any choices at all at this point. I have a doula, but I want to get a midwife before I have the option taken away from me.Sorta off topic but I had my last homebirth with my husband as my midwife Made the jump from hospital birth to unassisted and I look forward to doing it again Just an idea if you cannot find a midwife
Have you had one???? I'm catching a lot of *poo* from people who think homebirths are dangerous, and irresponcible. sigh. It's hard to keep a chin up sometimes.I quite agree! And they are both very knowledgable and kind and definitely Pro-Baby! And Home Births are the best!
