Request waiver forms ahead of time and have them filled out and put in your file before you arrive or right when you get there.

Also, see if your midwife will agree to place the baby on your chest when he/she is born and have the newborn exams conducted while the baby is laying on you. That way, if they pick up a tube of eye ointment, a syringe, etc. you, DH , & the doula will see it coming, and can say "no thank you. We filed a waiver for that already."

My daughter is perfect, but her birth was not. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with a traumatic childbirth experience, please visit
