Ugh just driving by the hospital we were going to go to makes my heart race. I was that annoying person asking a million questions on the tour and there was a lot of things I was hearing that didn't jive w/ me. I don't like being told what to do especially when we're paying them for care. My then ob also mentioned a lot of things I didn't like hearing. Like having to have an IV or at least a heplock, which is absurd to me, the fact that if I wanted delayed cord clamping she would keep my baby right where she was delivered - she wouldn't put baby on my chest or anything until AFTER her cord was cut. Then said there was no evidence that delayed cord clamping showed any benefit... we know this isn't true! UGH I could go on and on. I'm so glad I have a midwife now and cannot wait for my home birth I would have NEVER said that if I was planning a hospital birth.
