I had pre-eclampsia (which I have since discovered was caused by my eating habits) in my first pregnancy which ended in a c-section at 34 weeks (DS was breech). I have gotten so into the natural lifestyle since his birth and I am totally against any technology in pregnancy and childbirth. I want to go with the midwives again (I'm in Ontario, Canada by the way) but they said I can't unless I see a high risk specialist as well and deliver in hospital. I really want a homebirth! I live rural so it's only those midwives. How can I be forced to leave my own home to give birth if I don't want to? Is it really that high-risk? I have since found a diet that supposedly has 0% pre-eclampsia rate. I am not pregnant right now but trying very hard and I want to know what I should do before hand. Oh and if I do go witht he midwives I have to deliver in hospital 1 hour away. If not I have to go with the OB/GYN who delivered my son and was helping with my fertility problems who I have since fired. What to do?! How can I convince the midwives to take a chance on me?
