The more I think about the birth I'm trying to achieve and feel comfortable with, the more I'm considering just calling the MW at the very very end, right when I feel pushy (she's only 15min away).

I've only had 1 appt, so who knows if I'll mesh better with her at the others, but I just feel like she is a bit too medically for my tastes. I'm not sure if she is understanding how "hippy" I am, but there are plenty of appts. to discuss our feelings etc....

But truthfully, the thought of doing this (mostly) on my own is what appeals to me the most. Not for a glorified/hero type of things, it is just what feels right to me.

I would appreciate help/care during the pushing and afterbirth care, but I prefer to be left alone (from medical ppl) during the labor (took 2 births to figure this out!).
