I am ever planning my next pregnancy and birth. I had a beautifully, perfect pregnancy, and my water broke on it's own, but the moment I walked into the hospital, it was intervention after intervention. I ended up with very unnecissary csection. He got stuck in my pelvis and the medical staff said that any more kids I have will more than likely be delivered via csection. Here is my issue: when they allowed me in a squatting position, I felt my pelvis pop and a huge urge to push and said so. The nurse stuck her hand down there to keep me from pushing and made me lay back down because it was against hospital policy.
Here is what I am trying to figure out now. When we do concieve our next child, the midwives here don't accept our insurance because they have had issues out of them. Could I attend a regular OB for the first several months, who does accept my insurance, and switch to a midwife for the last few (I know it will be out of pocket)? We want a home delivery.
