Aw thanks guys. All I did was ask and then stall the other doctor until shift change. He was definitely the rockstar of obstetrics that day. It was definitely a big deal around the hospital. But I couldn't have done it by myself. I really though that at shift change I would have to make a decision to give in and have a c-section. The hard part of this was that my mother was really upset with me. I don't think she really thought that I had my babies best interest first. She wanted me to just listen to the doctor and do what I was told. In the end there was no emergency situation. No cord prolapse - the waters were intact for both other babies and everything was fine. All three babies are in the NICU but doing well. One had an infection at the start of the week that was scary but is over now. All are attempting to nurse, two better than the third. It will just take time for it to all come together so they can come home.
Amazing! I love your story. You are so lucky that you got an open-minded Dr & got to do a natural birth...doesn't matter if it wasn't the ideal water birth situation. Your Dr deserves a medal! Tell him to write a story to be published so other Drs will be willing to do natural birth for multiples.
Hope you are all doing well!
