Is this standard?! - Page 3

post #41 of 43
This DOCTOR obviously missed the most important part of home birth attendance - the part where the health care provider trusts the mother's body and intuitions.

She is medically liable and should be held to those standards. I hope you follow thorugh and file a formal complaint against this DOCTOR.

I am so, so sorry you went through all this! I don't believe a midwife's competence is much related to the "type" as I have seen wonderful direct entry midwives w/ no certification, hideously awful CNMs, and everything in between. This midwife sounds negligent to me. I always tell my students that if they feel like something is wrong, some instinct tells them, that their partners (in class w/ them) need to make sure someone listens to them. IMO moms just KNOW a lot of the time, well before a fetal monitor or outside person could pick up on it. I hope your LO is okay.
