I don't think I would have liked a CNM. I think they are more into the medical yall know that to be true or am I being a bit unfair?[/b]
I know that all the CNM's around here are very much into the medical model... Not all of them choose that, but in Iowa and Illinois to be a CNM you have to work under a doctor, and whatever the doctor says goes. It's very frustrating.
