But their literature says they work in conjunction with "your doctor", and that you still see your ob/gyn as you normally would but just prepare for a homebirth. Has anyone heard of this kind of set up? I mean, this group says they want to see you monthly, then biweekly, then weekly toward the end - the same as my ob/gyn would. So does this mean I'd be going to mucho appointments? That seems weird to me. Anyone have any thoughts on this kind of thing?
And I'm assuming I'm going to have problems finding a doc who's going to be supporting of homebirthing in the first place.
I'll be contacting this group again to get further information, but just wondering if anyone is familiar with this kind of arrangement.

They are generally looked down apon by CNM all though some work together quite harmonously.
I think the reason you are seeing a regular Dr. (and yes that is a lot of visits. you will be so poked and prodded your head will spin) Is kinda a smoke sceen to cover all you bases. That way iuf you have to have a hospital birth you will have a regular Dr.. you have been seeing. It may also cover the midwives leagally. I saw my Dr. once. He was kinda the undercover back up Dr. for a midwife that didn't legally exist. So the visit consisted of a lot of code words and lying essetially but I had to be seen at least once.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
