I've just found out my midwife (the norm in NZ) is referring me to the hospital obstetric team Basically I have had 2 high blood pressure readings (out of 2) with her, yet when I visit my GP, even the day before, the readings are normal! DH thinks I'm worrying too much, but I can't help thinking this is a slippery slope to losing the birth I want. I've already compromised since my m/w isn't keen on homebirths, and was happy with the birthing centre option, but I know they won't take me if I'm high risk. I'm just worried the OB will see a plus-sized woman with (supposed) high blood pressure, and I'll be classified as high risk and on the road to induction. Ugh, not what I wanted!
