My story, I'm on medicaid this time around and there are only two birth centers that accept it. One I don't feel comfortable with and the other is SO far away and we can't risk driving through the city to get to it until we can afford to renew the stickers on my car. I absolutely would NOT choose UC simply because of financial reasons. I know that isn't a smart idea. But because of the financial reasons, I'm at least looking into it and considering it. I currently don't feel comfortable with it. However, I also didn't feel comfortable with a lot of parenting decisions in the beginning and then came around after I educated myself. The least I can do is educate myself.
So my first question is about prenatal care. Right now I've been to a pregnancy resource center to get proof of pregnancy for medicaid and then I've been to one midwife appointment. Had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, had bloodwork at 8 weeks because my midwife couldn't see the baby that day and wanted to make sure he/she was growing right. Bloodwork came back normal. Now 10 weeks.
I do feel strongly that the anatomy scan is important.
So what do those who have a UC do about prenatal care?
I'm sure I'll have more questions =)
