I'm new to the forum and due in August. I'm switching from my ob/gyn practice and I'm in the midst of deciding whether to have a homebirth or midwife in a hospital and with who. I have combed through the site and gotten some great info but wanted to ask for some specifics about your experiences with:
1) Memaniye - If you had a homebirth with her, what were the positives and/or negatives? Did you benefit from her nutritional advice? Were her homeopathic remedies used and helpful? How did she deal with any complications? She seems very laid back, was that a good thing?
2) Beth Israel midwives (Joyce, Susan, Cory) - I'd love to hear any specifics about experiences with this group. Were you able to have the kind of birth you wanted despite the hospital setting? Are you able to request a specific midwife? Was the care personalized?
Thanks so much for any and all thoughts!
