Quote: i was wondering what you ladies do at prenatals; like, what is your role? BP, pulse, leopolds, fht, fundal height, checking urine (well, we usually do the UA together). Towards the end of their pregnancy, if they are comfortable with it, VEs. My preceptor threw me right in and started teaching me as soon as I started apprenticing. I like having her double-check the leopolds and fundal height. Sometimes I have the hardest time finding...
Just a difference in definition/opinion. Kinda like how I hear people say sometimes, "Yeah, I homeschool. After [public] school I work with my kids on XYZ." To me, that's not homeschooling. And to me, a birth with a medical professional present (i.e. Kidman's RN mother) isn't an UC.

We had a birth Friday afternoon that went great! She starts off the little baby storm this...
Quote: but do you think that a hospital would allow a RN and a psychologist to 'deliver' a baby at the hospital\? No. They would be somewhere else. You're missing my point. I think several of us here would agree that by having those people there, whether they are her parents or not, it would not be an UC.
Quote: mom is not a doctor either. But she's an RN. Sounds like a medical professional to me. *shrug*
Does anyone have a link to the recent homebirth safety study??
