I read your blog.  Very interesting!  I think what I am most shocked about is how much The Farm is played up as this oasis for natural-minded women to give birth, but after reading your story, I feel that whatever went on behind the scenes with the Farm Midwife and the OB that one night that changed up the urine catch option to the immediate C-section option is really an eye opener for me.  I read about The Farm in Ina May's books and think of it as a Mecca, but I hear about your experience there and I feel a much different reality.

 

So, because I know how important choosing The Farm was for a low-intervention birth was to you, I'm totally sorry about how this past week has been for your family.  I feel pissed off on your behalf.

Wow, just read your blog update.  First of all I am SO impressed by how you and your DH handled the whole situation, I know I would have gotten emotional and my DH would have gotten hostile.  Secondly I agree with Eden about The Farm.  I thought they were supposed to help you in getting the low intervention birth you wanted?  What a disappointment.  Third I am SOO GLAD you got that second opinion and avoided surgery.  You are a super mom already!

Wow, I just read your blog, too. I am SO impressed that you were so calm and collected. It's one thing to stand up to a "big, bad OB" but quite another to stand up to a Farm mw who is supposed to be the epitome of midwifery. I have to wonder what the heck was going on behind the scenes there. Also, I'm curious about how they present their statistics as far as transfers and such.  Perhaps they only have to report a transfer if it happens during labor, but if they pawn you off on an OB before that time, are they able to keep their Farm stats nice and pristine?  I don't know, but the whole thing seems so stressful. I'm glad you found a new care provider and that you can rest up and relax before your little one arrives.

I have to agree. Obviously I wasn't there watching on every person's end, but it definitely rubs me the wrong way. Then again there's often someone in the group that's the "bruised" apple, I suppose you could say... I would hope that's just the case here with the Farm.
