"I am also hesitant to teach something that requires extensive education on the option of highly medicalized birth" Curious as to what you mean by this. If you end up teaching in a hospital, it will be to your advantage to know all of the advantages and disadvantages of "medicalized birth" because that's what's so prevalent in most American hospitals today.

Thanks for the link to your blog. congratulations on your sweet baby and your VBAC!
You are a birth warrior! Congratulations on your new arrival. I hope you go to www.motherfriendly.org to fill out the birth survey so you can give feedback about this terrible OB. Then, let all animosity go and may your babymoom be sweet!
Chesire - I am so sorry for your loss, but thanks for the heads up. I will definitely tell her to ask about vasa previa. Nancy
