Anita! Firstly, good for you for taking control of your own birth! Your baby will thank you for it. Age is a crazy reason to put you into "high risk" but I can see you're not falling for it which is great news.
I'm glad you found a midwife/ob team that will chat with you. Just talk to them about your experiences and what your hopes for this one are. See if they can work with you here.
Hi , I'm glad you were able to find someone to see you ! When you do see them make sure you let them know right then the things you are hoping for in your pregnancy labor and birth , try to explain why if you can so they understand that you have educated yourself and are not just being different , kwim ? I hope they will work with you and you feel commfy with them !

Welcome to the group! ITA with the others, its good that you have a grip on your birth. It sucks that you got a med-wife instead of a real midwife. Have you contacted every midwife in your area? My mw took me on pretty late in the pregnancy, but I may have just gotten lucky. Anyhow, I am glad you joined us! Please stick around and post!
