I would love some feedback/advice if anyone can give me some. I've had two sections with my previous babies, the last one will be 3 1/2 years ago when this baby arrives. Our daughter (5) was born emerg c-section after trying for a home birth. She was under severe stress and had to come out immediately. Our son (about to be 3) was born last minute section when I found out I had way too low amniotic fluid to give birth naturally. :(
I really want to have a natural birth. And while my friend who is a midwife says it can happy and she can support me, the local OBs as well as the other midwives are very resistant if not at all unsupportive. So, it's going to be an uphill battle at this point.
My husband is supportive as long as it's in a hospital based on our history with births. :) I'm OK with that, but it just makes a vaginal birth that more difficult when we don't 'have support from a birthing staff nor majority of our midwives. And my friend (midwife) who does support me will be off with her baby who is due in July.....
So, any thoughts, support, ideas, etc. you can provide would be incredibly grateful.
