I just found in my paperwork that my midwife won't agree to do your HB if you aren't willing to try BFING. while that makes sense to me, and i am going to bf this one just like my last, I was still rather surprised. What do you guys think?[/b]

Hm, that seems a little bit strange to me. I think one of the biggest reasons I love being cared for by a midwife instead of an OB is because they are more supportive of YOUR choices, and not trying to make you conform to a certain way of doing things.

So that kind of requirement seems a little backwards to me. Now, I understand if the midwife made it a requirement for women to learn about the benefits of breastfeeding through a video, book, or class - but in the end, would still respect whatever choice she made about it.
