Janet -- I can totally understand where you're coming from. When I first brought up to my mw that I wanted uc, she was shocked since I was a first time mama. In fact, she said specifically that everyone she knew who had gone the uc route did it in reaction to a bad medical experience. She couldn't understand why me (with NO experience) would want uc, when I'd had nothing but a good experience with her. For me, choosing uc was due to a belief in my innate abilities to give birth (just as you said) but this was hard to convey to her and I think very hard for her not to take personally.
Anyway, wanted to let you know that I can really relate to your post...
