  • Sarah, thank you! You have helped me beyond belief I’m watching all of your videos I wish I had known about you sooner but I just discovered you. Hearing it all from a professional puts me at ease and I feel more equipped to choose my Dr/midwife. I’ve taken notes on multiple of your videos to help me choose a doctor/midwife/ hospital, and tons of questions that have come to mind as I watch.
    You’re so helpful I’m so thankful for you!

  • I wish i seen this video before I chose my doctor because I honestly don’t like them! It wasnt a planned pregnancy but next time I definitely will choose better

  • What a great video! I find so many people are still confused about the topic and find it hard to make an informed decision. Keep up the great work on your channel:)

  • I’m currently in labor. I have been seeing this midewife throughout my entire pregnancy. I didn’t like her day one but she was the only midwife close to us who did the natural thing I was looking for. I’m seriously regretting it. She is unsupportive and treats me like an inconvenience. I’m scared to call or text her. I’ve been in labor close to 24 hours and only talked to her twice. Please ladies make a good decision, if you don’t like them GO TO SOMEONE ELSE! Your midwife can make or break this experience for you

  • Mam meri wife ka blood group A negative hain jis karan bachcha badh nahi pata hai. Mera blood group O positive hai. To plz koi acha ilaaz btao.

  • I live in a small place,almost all doctors have super high csection rates.I want to try for a vbac.I am now almost 30 weeks pregnant and between 2 doctors.One has experience with vbac and is pro natural but our chemistry is awful.I am not feeling comfortable at all and believe he lacks motivation and encouragement.The other one has been my obg for many years,I feel comfortable with him.But… he has just started to have women with vbac,he has experience with only 1 or 2.Also I am afraid he will make up excuses for a new csection at the last minute.I am thinking about having a doula at home before getting to the hospital with my doctor in order to increase my chances for a vbac.What do you think?
    Thank you!
