I'm Refusing All U/S.. - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I know a lot of women who didn't have ultrasounds. They were under the care of regular old hossy docs. I thought ultrasounds weren't routine for low risk women.

I had a midwife birth in a hospital and while I did have an u/s at 18wks for anatomy scan (first time kiddo and I wanted to see!) I had nothing after that and no constant monitoring while in the hospital, so as long as you have someone who will advocate for you during the birth you should be ok.  I'd certainly not want to be stuck alone in a room with that doc of yours if there was already issues over an u/s, as I think he will take advantage of you in every way possible just to prove his point, be it wrong or right.  I also had a 3 page "birth plan" that was given to every nurse we came in contact with, it was on my chart, taped to the door AND the wall in the room just in case they missed it on the door ;-)  My midwife told me the wording was borderline pushy BUT she got to know me and DH well enough to know it was totally us and that we would stand our ground. Good luck!

yes sonos were not routine when i had my dd 13 years ago but now it is a usually they have you sign consent saying you understand risks yada yada but she is also declining all doppler use(listening to heartbeat) which they could do at 20+ weeks but are probably not skilled at
