I found the only midwife near me well not the only one but shes the cheapest and im already butting heads with her. She called me today to tell me the lady who gave birth in December (she was her midwife) will call me when she has the time. So we can talk about The midwife. She wants me to know more about her thru her clients. The problem i have is how she basically keeps telling me or asking me to rent her $400 tub. I dont think so! I told her no and im going to buy what i want and what is cheapest. I am buying the Oasis birth pool for $65.00 So then she said well i need to know how big it is and if its going to work. Um last time i checked you dont need to be inside with me?? And its my choice... I dont like hands on midwifes and i want to do what i WANT. this isnt her Birth even though i have her as a midwife. i can simply find someone else but i dont know yet.
Then she said to me "Go to trader joes and buy the rainbow Prenatals" i said uh huh then i spoke up and i said About the Prentals, i dont take any and never have and my kids are fine. I told her i get sick with any prenatal even Vegan ones. I told her i am Vegan and i eat healthy. I dont thinks he understands what Veganism is. I told her No dairy no Meat just to be straight forward. She asked me if i like eggs for breakfast i said No i dont eat no eggs, no milk, no animals. That i do not agree with that type of food and how it is unhealthy. Nobody is going to change my mind and i been a vegan since Feb 2012. And before that i was a Vegetarian.
I told her i eat all foods like Beans, Rice, Legumes, Fruits, vegetables. I use Raw Protein powder for my shakes. I eat a lot of Lentils, Beans, Avocados. I make Awesome meals. I make food from scratch every day. She then started telling me how there is only 14G of Protein in my shake. How would she know? She doesnt know what vegan is much less Raw. That she doesnt want me Anemic... Im not.. but im also not going to eat like a pig sorry! I eat how i want and i dont eat for two, i eat for my self. I dont believe in the whole eating for two theory. I eat when im hungry and drink water when im thirsty. Im 5 weeks friday and im not any more hungrier then i was before i found out i was pregnant.
She was telling me the lady she helped with her pregnancy is Anemic and eats "Organic foods" Like its a bad thing. We have a Language barrier also, she is Mexican and im half Mexican but i cant understand when she speaks English and i dont think she "Understands" My lifestyle. Im vegan, i breast feed, i co sleep, i dont like prenatals.. Im kinda of a hippie with food and stuff. Shes been a midwife for 20 years as what i read. but im not really clicking with her. She is charging $4,000 with out the Tub
idk i feel conflicted. i mean shes nice and all. She asked me about my Religion if i had one. I dont know why any of that matters. I am not religious, im a Wiccan... She said oh the cosmos.. that was rude. I believe in the Goddess and The God but not the christian one. I rely on my husband for support and nobody else. i dont chant every hour to my gods lol. She wants me to do Art? like draw stuff.
