I read your post and I just wanted to add two thoughts-- I believe that the hormones of the labor proccess tend to make a woman who might be normally fiesty pretty passive. I believe you when you say you trusted your midwife. Please forgive yourself for that. I think our minds in labor do go into a mode of gratitude toward those who are helping us. I have been at thousands of births and it really is pretty rare for women to stay assertive..I think you may need to...

It scared the CRAP out of me. This very tall woman standing on the foot of her bad...it was like...

The fact she had a bicornuate uterus is really only a predisposing factor, like grand...

I was not in a position to make choices or decisions. I didn't want to die but woud have easily given in to it if I hadn't had proper attention. You can debate all you...
