Congrats Melly! Such a lovely name for your sweet (and big!) little girl. I take it that I should expect to go to Madigan while I'm in transition or later so that I avoid interventions and just pop the baby out ?
Anyhow, great job, and if there is anything I can do to help you, please PM me!
I was really surprised by Madigan. I don't know if it's the norm, but while I was there, they wanted to do everything they could to avoid interventions for me. I ended up laboring in the tub and not using any drugs at all (even though I asked!). It was a good birth experience, but I never want to have another baby in a hospital. I couldn't get any rest!
So happy to hear things at Madigan went well for you. It sounds like you got to work with the midwife team- the ones I met seemed great, and the one that helped deliver a friend's baby was awesome ( suggesting position changes, which worked, instead of using other interventions to help with a stuck baby).
My non-military midwife is actually pretty impressed with Madigan...apparently they ave higher VBAc rate than ther hospitals in the area...so yay Army
