About your daughter and a midwife not knowing what to do? I don't know if I missed a post or anything but I don't know the story.

I think that it's very safe to say that every single woman in this DDC is doing what she thinks is the absolute best for her and her baby. I might disagree with your decisions, and you might disagree with mine, but it's easy to respect another mother, because I know that she's doing what she truly believes is right for her baby. There are risks in both hospital births and homebirths, and I'm sure that each of us have carefully weighed our options before making a decision.
I wholeheartedly agree. I know that my midwife is working on statistics for MANA but I'm fairly certain that her 11 years of success aren't really documented much.
