Wow, that's awesome! I have a feeling I'll be fighting it the whole way. I really really really want a UC, but there are so many variables. Like getting to full term.
Here's the deal with my OB. Dr. S (my OB) has been in practice for over 30 years. He's a native to this country but was trained in the US and worked for the Army (or was it AirForce) for 15 years. So he absolutely understands my culture, English, etc. When Dr. S returned here, Dr. T (also native, but UK trained and married a UK woman) was just founding the natural birth suite with emphasis on waterbirth. The only hospital in the country to offer it. He trained Dr S, who has now taken over the "natural birth" stuff at this hospital because Dr. T. is mostly retired and lives here 6mo and UK 6mo. It seems that in the last couple years, Dr. S is getting more scared of litigation. His C/S rate is up, yet he's the ONLY doc here in the country (other than rural areas w/little to no hospital) that has experience with breech birth. Dr. T is mostly retired though he did say that if he happened to be here in July/August, he'd attend me.
Here's where it gets sticky. Even if I do birth there with Dr. S, who's to say he won't be hands on instead of "hands off the breech". Allow me to waterbirth twins? Probably not. He's probably "let" me "try for vaginal" if both are head down and maybe if babyB is breech. Both breech? Forget it. I've been reading up on the risks and trying to decide if breech/breech is something I'm willing to UC for.
My Aussie midwife (CNM) will be here in July but would only attend me if both are head down. And she's be willing to go with me to the hospital if she won't attend at home. No other midwives available. It is so CRAZY!!! What to do!!?!?!? It seems that both options are about the same. I really want to stay home.
I'm so glad that I'm 16 weeks and have time to decide. I did locate a chiropracter who has experience turning breech babies, so at least I have that option. I can't believe I'm even obsessing about breech, considering I know of ZERO twins that haven't been born by C/S, let alone any breech that I know of not by C/S.
OK, sorry for the novel
