I birthed my son at a birthing center with a mw and a doula. The mw turned out to be more of a MEDwife and was very pushy and rude throughout my labor! She also did not respect some parts of my birth plan. Anyway, I'm already entertaining the idea of a UC for any future babies. However, during my birth with ds I had extensive tearing involving skin and muscle. The mw sewed me up with several stitches and for this reason I was very glad she was there. What do you do if you tear badly during a UC? Certainly you can't stitch it yourself and I would hate to have to go to the hospital right after giving birth and in so much pain down there!
