Hi all, I know that there are things doctors will say and try to do that aren't necessary. I know somethings will be necessary and I've kind of gotten a feel for that.
My midwife recently told me that she would give me Pitocin if I didn't progress quickly enough for the hospital's standards. I'm pretty much stuck with the hospital (Army hospital) if I want my insurance to cover anything. But I don't get why my midwife would tell me to get Pit or get out... Should I be concerned about this?
I'm not due for quite a while, but I want to make sure I can educate my husband on the why's and the how's of natural child birth. It's been a struggle as is to convince him that just because the doc wants to do something doesn't mean it's the best choice or even necessary. Especially for birthing positions.
I'm thinking I might just wait a few hours before I even go into the hospital... I'd rather have a home birth, but we just can't afford it :(
