Hi everyone hope you're doing well.. So I had a Mirena which was due to come out in December. I had it removed by planned parenthood. I started having a lot of issues and found out I was already 2 months pregnant when the Mirena was removed. I have been hemorrhaging, a laceration near my placenta has doubled in size over the week and the ER said they do not know if the baby will make it..


I am on Medicaid,--most important part, and have a mmj card--second most important part. I do not want, nor do I need the stress of social services, and I've heard horror stories about Memorial calling them on mothers just for having THC in their system so I am not sure Memorial is the place to have my baby. Now, spare me your lectures about what you think my lifestyle entails, you can do your own research on the medicinal benefits of cannabis, that is NOT the point of this thread and I don't want it derailed. I have SEVERE PTSD and high anxiety and I NEED my childbirth to be as low-stress as possible.


I need help finding an OB, or CNM, that is going to LISTEN to MY needs and be experienced in high risk pregnancies. See I am homeopath and usually refuse medicines unless they're holistic. In general it's REALLY difficult to get me into a doctor at all, with the exception of pregnancies. This is not my first baby, I have had 3 births, one natural, 2 epidural(yeah..not holistic but I was weak haha) and I had a car accident that gave me 2 bulging disks so I don't even know if I can have (or want, honestly I am older and more wise)  an epidural again.


I would prefer a cnm doula, but I know because I am poor there are limited options for me. However that is my wish and  any help getting me to the right place would be severely appreciated. I saw that St Francis has a nice birthing center, I was thinking about having the baby there.


But, look with all of my requests I'm already 3 months along I NEED to get in somewhere..Someone trustworthy, respectable and compassionate...

Try Dr. Jordan with CHSP. She does high-risk pregnancies and goes through the Penrose/St-Francis system.
