I wanted to use a midwife for my birth, but it's looking like that won't be an option because my insurance considers them "out of network," and thus much more expensive.
So I want to find a doctor who will be supportive of natural birth, and a hospital that encourages it (ie: they'll let me get in the shower, have a doula, labor out of bed). I want as little intervention as possible (which is why I wanted to use a midwife!)
So, does anyone know of any doctors in the Peoria area (I'll be living just north of Westgate) who could give me this experience? I'm willing to drive further if I need to, so I want to hear about any good doctors in the Valley, but obviously I would prefer to stay close to home.
