I emailed her about preventing posterior babies (dd was posterior). She said that reclining on the couch shouldn't affect the babies position and that posterior births don't usually happen twice (maybe the latter was meant to give me more confidence, I don't know).
|She also said that tears are more common when birthing in a squat than other positions. She actually seemed to discourage pushing in a squat. I thought this was the *best* position for giving birth (for many women anyway).|
|There are other little things she's said that I've gone home and double checked and found out not to be true. I've always been a bit distrustful of medical type people (thank goodness!) but this is a little silly.|
Anyway, it's too late for me to switch MW's. I'm nearly 36 weeks and our relationship is too personal at this point.
|I think that you need to deal with *your* trust issues.|
|She attended my dd's birth and was great [snip] had switched to my MW at about 34 wks|
