Sounds like an oxymoron, but I have a doubt... Usually midwives are trained to chop the foreskins...              Does anyone have any info on that?
You going to have a midwife, right? Does the husband realize that a midwife knows what to do in any particular case and bringing all nessecary assets as she comes to your house. (For example , I remember my midwife even brought gas balon, etc.) The only thing that is impossible to do at home is a c-section. But if its really needed - a woman can be transfered at proper time... (I might not aware of some details ... but that's what it seems to me ...)
I was watching about 10 minutes of it and than I could not watch any longer, because of my deep disappointment with Penn and Teller. They were portraying people who chose not to vax as ... stupid ... They were expressing tremendous amounts of some unreasonable anger. That's how it looked like... Also they were talking very negative about Dr. Andrew Walkefield... and(as its known) his story is not very simple - that he just "being discredited". As much as I was happy...

Many of my acquaintances think that my desire to avoid "wonders of modern medicine", portrays me as non-progressive, even somewhat limited person. Some of them just thought that I'm brave or so...
Oh, I see now, ladies... Was quite a surprise for me to hear that, because I was convinced, that for every woman - pushing stage is much harder (for me it was like a murder, comparing to contraction stage). I guess the epidural is not bad for many women. However first (and last) epidural gave me very uncomfortable complication, with ... urinating ... for many month after. If I had, lets say, another birth and it would be VERY painful, probably I would be...
Labour has two main parts: "contraction" part" and "pushing" part. Only the second one is really painful, but epidural is just not designed to releive the pain during the pushing part.
