Hope you all can offer some advice. My client, who is seeing the best options for hospital birth in our city, has GD. Because she's with CNM's, apparantly the protocol is that she also see a specialist. She's due in December, and now the specialist is "not liking her numbers". But they say baby and mom look good. They will put her on insulin and induce if she goes past her due date if she doesn't get her numbers exactly in what they are considering normal range. AND she cannot deliver with the midwives (there's only one o.b in the practice), or have the water birth she was planning. She says the midwife she talked to after the appointment with the specialist "couldn't really give her an answer" as to why these things were no longer possible. Hmmmm, could that be because there's no good reason? What do you think, wise women?
