So recently, I have read a lot of replies in certain posts that end with, "oh you just need to find a midwife because they are better..." Why is that?
I ask because I have no experience with them, but I personally love my dr! He is my personal doctor as well as my ob doctor, and he really isn't a by the book doctor, which I love, and its all about what is truly best and what a mother wants! He tries to make pregnancy, labor, and delivery, everything a mother wants it to be.
So why do you feel a midwife or doula is better? Im simply curious

My midwife made suggestions on ways that pregnancy could be more enjoyable, ways to help my baby move into a good position for birth, things I could do to help get my body ready for the big show, and helped me prepare, mentally and physically, for the birth of my baby. Midwives assist the mother during pregnancy and childbirth but the mother is really the one who is doing all of the work. There are different types of midwives too, and nurse-midwives tend to be more medically minded than a direct entry midwife or a certified professional midwife.
