So I have to switch midwives :/

The one I’m currently seeing works with a practice of 5 doctors and they just changed their policies so they no longer allow women to go past 40 weeks without induction and/or scheduled Csection. Also they now have a policy if you’re having a vbac you must be on the monitor the whole time so stupid. So with the help of the nurse I met in L&D the other night I found a new midwife who’s ENTIRE practice all has the same beliefs and I have my first appointment with her next week! Bummed about switching but excited to not be pressured into anything!

    Isn’t it depressing :/ my mother carried me a month and ten days past her “due date” and everyone was healthy and fine!...

    HIjacking this because.. the whole practice doesn’t allow women to go past 40 weeks?!? That’s an ESTIMATED due date…....
