sooo....had my dr's appt this AM and brought up birth options/etc. it was a very nice conversation and very helpful infowise, etc....a few things i'm not sure about but overall i'm pretty happy with everything.
she is very much in favor of NCB and is pretty much willing to let me do whatever - various positions, saline lock instead of IV as long as I am staying hydrated, walking, birth ball, jacuzzi, etc....delayed cord cutting, delaying baby care for a bit, baby on my stomach right away nursing asap (all barring complications of course), etc.
inductions - she will not do an induction before 41wks barring complications and will not push for it until 42 - YAY
episiotomy - she's only ever done one and that was to aid in a vaccuum delivery - not as a matter of routine.
labor "time limits" - as long as things are progressing and baby is okay they will let me go; and i can wait at home as long as i want lol within reason of course (don't wanna have to deliver in an ambulance, haha).
pit after delivery - normally done as a matter of routine....not sure about this one yet, i need to do more research....any input?
also has anyone heard of mom using an oral vitaminK supplement (which passes through breastmilk and crosses the placenta from what i understand) instead of giving baby the oral vaccine??
ummm.....drat this baby brain i forget what else we covered....oh well when i remember i'll edit, lol.
oh yeah. she's in favor but is glad i am keeping my options open - said she had some IV pain meds with her birth that she basically knew she was having cxs but just didn't care....i forgot to ask her which meds she had - that's next appt cuz i have to write stuff down i forgot to ask anywho - but which meds do they use does anyone know and side effects?
