What I hear you saying is that you have some concern with the possibility of placental issues, specifically placement. Is it possible for you to use a doppler and find the placenta by listening for the sound of the placental flow? Of course that doesn't help much if the placenta is posterior, but if it's anterior and high up that might reassure you that you're not having any issues with previa. How opposed are you to having a anatomy scan around 20 weeks to verify...

Congrats! What an amazing story!
One of the stem cell banking companies has a nice Labor and Birth book that they sent me months and months ago to give to clients and it has a nice guided imagery exercise in it. I loan it out to couples to try and if they like it they can copy it for their own use.

I agree, ditch these providers and find ones that have some faith and trust in your body. While I agree with the second paragraph of your post, the fist part is untrue. Xray doesn't account for the influence of relaxin on the pelvis and the baby's head to mold to pass through the...
One of the equally important things in teaching childbirth education is knowing how to teach effectivly. It's one thing to know a lot about childbirth and it's awesome to want to impart that knowledge to others, but there is a wealth of information to be gained in learning how to teach so that your students will listen, hear and even more importantly understand. Now that's not saying not to follow your heart, but at the very least invest in and read Childbirth...
