Hello glowing mamas!
I have a few questions for Missouri mommies. I am in search of a healthcare provider as I will be 10 weeks on Friday need to establish care as soon as possible. I have seen one local OB and did *not* like him, so I am looking for mommies with previous experience. I am willing to drive and have access to North West Arkansas, Joplin, and Springfield.
I want someone who will allow me to birth as naturally as possible. I do not want a C-section, epidural, episiotomy, or to be forced to birth in a certain position. I know, I am picky, but I have nightmares about being strapped to a bed, tied to a fetal monitor, stuck full of needles and far worse things...only to end up with a C-section as many dear friends have experienced.
I would love to do a midwife, but I have yet to find one that accepts my insurance
Sooo, in the SW Missouri/NW Arkansas region who did you like? Who did you not like? Would you go back to your provider and how flexible was he/she with your birth plan and wishes?
Help??? I was so excited, but know this is raining on my happy parade
