Uc is something my dh and i have considered for a while and now more than ever when the only hb mw in my area that insurance will covernis no longer taking new clients. Also, what you said is as close as i think you can get in words exactly what ive been feeling and thinking. Im so sick of not being heard, not finding that match and being told im wrong by people that are supposed to trust a womans intuition and the process of birth that i want to scream and ive come to...
