So this week I called an OB/GYN to make a preconception appt and interview him. I want to have a midwife and home birth, but I also want an OB who is involved in my case and, should the need arise due to risk, deliver my baby with my birthing requests (in a hospital, obviously). My OB will need to agree to involve my midwife in my care and support my choice for homebirth, but if I must go to the hospital I want as little intervention as is necessary. I want my baby given to me and kept with me after the birth, no immediate vaccinations, no chemicals an antibiotics rubbed in their eyes, and I want the Cord to stop pumping blood before it is cut (takes about 2-8 mins), no pitocin or epidural. It I common practice for hospitals to administer the above so my OB.really needs to be on board with MY desires so long as the immediate health is stable an unaffected. Lol does this make me sound crazy? My appt is the 26th@ 1030
