I was under the care of the MW at Magee & then switched care to TMC at about 30 wks. This was all due to insurance reasons, I had previously never had woman care anywhere other than TMC. I really liked the midwives at Magee, v nice, never a wait to see them, either. I reeeeeeally wanted to birth at the center, but had a scheduled breech c/s (breech from 21 wks on!). Actually, I reeeeeeally wanted a home UC, but dh would never go for that, so the center was our compromise. He was looking forward to it too, no drugs, wires, or interventions, get to leave v soon, etc. AGH was great for a c/s & the post-natal care was AWESOME. Baby slept in my bed all the time, nurses thought it was cute! No pressure to bottle-feed, take the baby, etc. Excellent nurses all around, wonderful. Im def bummed about HAVING to deliver in the hospital next time, but the law is the law, I suppose.. IDK, can a hospital MAKE you have a c/s for a breech delivery if you are already laboring there? I will still go to TMC for care, though.
I also went to AGH for a version. It was not bad, a little scary, but nothing traumatic. Baby could not make it all the way around, had her legs crossed. Oh, and Kathy was w/ me for the version and Ann was w/ me for the birth. Ann has been the one I have seen the most over the years.
Maggie, I, too, have thought the next one might be an "accidental" uc homebirth, hee hee.
