I was just reading your post in the "Cesarean Birth Recovery & Support Thread 10 (April/May 2004) "
Your birth experience sounds frighteningly like mine! I know it's none of my business, but where do you live? You wouldn't be in St. Pete, FL would you?
If so, we need to talk! Please e-mail me if you get this message and are in FL.
My (2) midwives had 40 yrs between them. One was CNM, the other a "retired" midwife serving as her assistant. They let me push 12 hours - and said I had an anterior lip. I ended up with a c-section and post-partum hemmorhage (TWICE).
Bless you for telling your story. Tell it again and again and again!
