Not what I had planned
Well, I'm sure lots of you have already read about my story, and I don't want to type the whole story again, but to put it in a nutshell:
My homebirth would have been much less frightening if the midwife was assisting me in labor, rather than leaving me alone in labor to go have a supposedly quick dinner which ended up lasting for an hour and 45 minutes,
: while my husband delivered the baby....she showed up 5 minutes after the delivery(with her boyfriend, who had to chase her dog which she let loose,in my yard, knowing that he doesn't like cats and the neighborhood is full of them, and poor dh had to help catch him
), and I never got my Strep B shot
. Luckily the baby and I were and are fine.
I would do a homebirth again if I planned to have more kids, but DEFINITELY not with her!!!
She is the reason it is so hard for midwives to have a good rep...To all the GOOD midwives out there
keep up the good work!!
