Has anyone had experience with a birthing center?
I'm not sure they will take me in because I'm 18 weeks and my first baby was 10lb 7oz and had SD, but I think I will have a better pregnancy and delivery if I can switch. I'm currently with a group of CNMs that deliver at a teaching hospital. I have such awful memories with my first birth and have serious issues with the CNM who delivered her and my chances of having her again are over 30%.
Anyway, I'm calling them to ask questions tomorrow, but I'm curious about your experiences. I also read that some will not let you birth in their center if you go past 41 weeks? I don't want to gamble over getting that awful CNM, but I also don't want the added stress of having to change plans if I go past my due date.
