I heart midwives

When deciding to have children, my initial thought was to have an OB/GYN deliver our child and make it the best experience with whatever drugs would make me comfortable. Then a friend, a naturopath, recommended watching the "Business of Being Born". Our life was forever changed. We met our midwife and felt a connection instantly. She always spent whatever time it took to make sure we got through all of our questions, we never felt rushed, she helped us understand the birth process and connecting with it on a different level than we knew possible. She has delivered both of our boys, completely drug free and safe environment. To this day, I have so much respect for our midwife and look forward to my annual exams with her. I'm just sad that I don't get to see her more than once a year because I feel like I not only have a fabulous caretaker but I have a fabulous friend.
