Okay, I went to my midwife for the first time today, she is with an HMO(I know my first mistake), I am planning on a homebirth, but felt the need to see someone, probably because I had a miscarriage three months ago. Anyway, I went through the entire appointment(I was there for 2&1/2 hours-mostly waiting), and at the end she tells me she will have to turn me over to an ob because of my weight(I am a lot overweight). I have had two healthy pregnancies and births, and this is the weird part...when I asked what problems they were worried about she said I would have extra fat in my birth canal and could have trouble pushing the baby out. okay I pushed out 2 babies as a very big gal, with no problems. So I guess I am wondering if anyone else has heard of this? And please tell me the birth canal thing is a joke...I mean fat is squishy, right?
