I watched the business of being born last night after i had my 22 week appointment with my OB. After the appt. my husband and I were talking about how going to the OB seems to be like a cattle call- I wanted to talk about natural childbirth, but my OB was standing by the door and I could tell she was ready to move on. So I was checking on netflix and I found the doc BOBB- this has made me wonder the following:
1. is it wise to switch to a birth center after 22 weeks?
2. will a midwife/birth center take me if this is my first child and i'm over 35?
3. has anyone had an experience they would like to share regarding a local birth center
For me home birth is not an option, but I think a birth center might be a little less medical. I'm concerned about all the interventions that seem to happen anytime a woman with a regular, non-complicated pregnancy/labor goes into the hospital for birth.
Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on these questions.
