As I mentioned in the fertility forum, my boyfriend and I are trying to have a baby. Because of some medical problems I have, I know that I will be labeled high risk right off the bat. After all, I don't know of too many people with spinal cord injuries that are labeled low risk (even people with low level SCI's).
I can't stand hospitals, due to being in and out of them a couple years ago for surgeries (some were emergency surgeries). Plus, after watching the movie "The Business of Being Born", I really hate how women are treated when they are a high risk pregnancy. I don't want to be treated like a medical experiment.
I was wondering if midwives and doulas help out women who are labeled high risk, even though they are healthy? Despite having gastroparesis and a L 4/5 spinal cord injury, I am perfectly healthy otherwise. Do some midwives make exceptions?
