Ive been going round and round in circles lately because I do not really like my drs. I have 4 of them... or maybe 5 and none of the 3 Ive seen I have liked a whole lot. My last dr was amazing but he retired. We are on a small island in alaska and I have not been able to find anything about homebirths here. Im starting to think I might want to go that way though. A few questions though... I had an episiotomy with my last birth. Im really nervous about that whole situation... I mean I dont think I needed one if we would have tried some different positions and what not and I only pushed for about 30 minutes and 15 of which my dr. was there. But Im worried about tearing and the stitches from that. He gave me something before he stitched me up so I didnt feel it at all. Besides that and the group strep b antibiotics I didnt have any interventions. My labor was only 3 and a half hours at the hospital and everything was pretty good. Also I have tricare prime remote, any idea if that covers home births?? Just any info would be soo appreciated. I dont get much help from family or friends because they are all very mainstream. Also is it easy to switch from dr. midwife at this point? Ill be 18 weeks tomorrow. Thanks!
