OK so a little background- I was living in TN and had a wonderful birth center that I was working with. We had a loose birth plan worked out for my second DC- including some natural induction methods. My first I had GD and then developed PIH and had to be induced at the hospital (which was soooooo far away from what I'd wanted to do). A few weeks ago we moved across the country and now I am working with a new set of people..eeek. For this one, I have GD but it's well under control with diet and my BP has gone up slightly in the past 2 weeks but nothing to worry about... yet. I am not fully comfortable with these new midwives yet- they are a little more mainstream minded than I would like (which saddens me a bit but that's another story). I am worried about another hospital induction. I had a HORRIBLY scary experience with my son and don't want to go thru that again. I have thought about trying naturally, however because of my problems I don't know if I should. Has anyone tried this with PIH and/or GD? What worked? What didn't? Am I nuts to even start thinking of this? If I start this process---When should I start? Thanks Mamas!
