I'm working towards my EMT, planning on my Advanced EMT with PALS(pediatric life support) this Fall but jobs are a little scarce. I did say that I put my foot down with a few things like breech,twins and VBAC because the state says it's illegal for a CPM to do knowingly do those cases, you want to risk your license fine but I paid too much for mine to loose it.
I was looking into this because I support a woman's choice to labor at home if they're a good candidate and with somebody well trained. What does keep bothering me is that some of these ladies are tossing around comments and articles about home birth being safer then hospital birth. I'm sorry ladies I'm fast at getting an IV line in but I'm not packing a blood bank. I can do CPR but I can't afford an AED. Is it a safe option for a low risk mother who is making an informed choice to take on some risk? I believe so but safer is a stretch.
Also some midwives seem to be bothered by that I've only had c-sections. I was never a good candidate for home birth or even vaginal birth because both of my babies went into distress and needed oxygen after birth because they didn't fit through my pelvis despite movement. Why would this bother the clients?
Maybe you guys can help me with those questions.
