Anita! Firstly, good for you for taking control of your own birth! Your baby will thank you for it. Age is a crazy reason to put you into "high risk" but I can see you're not falling for it which is great news.

I'm glad you found a midwife/ob team that will chat with you. Just talk to them about your experiences and what your hopes for this one are. See if they can work with you here.

Please keep up updated and stick around.

Welcome to the group! ITA with the others, its good that you have a grip on your birth. It sucks that you got a med-wife instead of a real midwife. Have you contacted every midwife in your area? My mw took me on pretty late in the pregnancy, but I may have just gotten lucky. Anyhow, I am glad you joined us! Please stick around and post!
