Hello Jamie...I saved up and am treating myself to this forum yet again innocent.gif

Without giving too much background info, I may be considered high risk and need to leave my midwife practice. My fear is not being able to birth as naturally as possible.  I am just wondering if you can give me some insight on my birthing experience?

Thank you!

Hi Megan! :)

 

Well I have to say that I am not seeing any issues. I see you birthing naturally as desired. I'm not convinced you are high risk either. That seems to be a bit fuzzy though for me to tell if you will be confirmed as high risk. But even if you are, and you have to fight a bit for your birthing rights, I see it going very well.

I will say this, I do see you birthing in what looks like a hospital setting. But I know there are CNM's that practice in hositals in some states. Are you one of them? it doesn't look as sterile as a regular hospital room to me. So it could definitely be a birthing center attache to a hospital, b/c I can see hospital gear.

Does this picture mean anything to you?

The doctors say I am struggling with gestational diabetes and may put me on insulin at my next appt on Sept. 12.  If I go on insulin then I am high risk and will have to find a doc and leave the midwife practice. YES the pic you are seeing IS what I desire my birth experience to be: at a birthing center located within a hospital with a midwife in attendance...I have already been putting up a fight as I feel as though my blood sugar is not that high (supposed to be 60-95 when I wake up in the morning and its between 97-11 then 2 hours after meals its supposed to be under 120 which it pretty much is...it was over 120 just a few times when I was trying to figure out how my body reacted to carbs. but it has been under 150 even when I was experimenting).  SO thats the background...Your insight is so valuable to me! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
