So, I am still fairly new to the phoenix area, but thought i found a Dr. that was willing to work with me and my more natural approach to childbirth. Boy was I wrong. I must be a naive first time mother because I thought we were close to being on the same page. Here I am 39 1/2 weeks pregnant and my Dr. is telling me that I must be induced at 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Since when does a Dr. TELL me what I'm gonna do with my body??? I DON'T WANT TO BE INDUCED!!! I actually tried to find a midwife that would deliver out of Banner Estrella Hospital, but they don't exist. Most of the midwives in the phoenix area seem to do mostly home births. I am not comfortable switching to a home birth this late in the game, even though that is what I may be doing next time. Advice anyone??
