Just found this board and am very excited about it! I am trying to go with a med-free birth but I will be in a regular hospital. I love my OB and he is very respectful of all my wishes even though he is a medical doc.
Yesterday I asked him about having an IV in me- I don't really want one. He said I don't have to but I should at least get the port thing..I forgot what it was called- something lock maybe?? Not sure if that's a big deal to just have it ready just in case.
