She wants a homebirth but is a really horrible candidate so she found an insane midwife that thinks everybody is better with a homebirth. My friend is 300lbs with hypertension that she has had since before the pregnancy,she has had 2 miscarriages and struggles with PCOS. It isn't even technically legal for a homebirth midwife to take my friend on as a patient in my state but since I'm in a licensing optional state I don't even know who I'd report it to.
I guess I just rush to finish my EMT so I can attend the birth with my jump bag so I can start an IV of fluids at least if she starts to bleed out and find out what it would take to get nitroglycerine pills.
How would you try to explain that you think it's a bad idea especially after the midwife has gone all wacko? Anybody know how to report a wacko midwife? If I do just have to sit and be prepared to use my training would you recommend showing up monitoring the whole pregnancy for eclampsia or just watching the delivery?
