So, we had planned on going to the same Midwifery practice that we used in our last two pregnancies and giving birth at their freestanding birth center. At our first prenatal appointment at ten weeks, we discovered twins! In the state of Idaho, midwives are no longer allowed to oversee twin pregnancies, so we now have to find a new provider. I'm terrified!
Obviously, I'm a huge believer in natural childbirth if at all possible. Our oldest (5) was a natural childbirth at the birth center. With our youngest (3), we were able to labor at the birth center, but after my water broke it was discovered that he was breech. Apparently he flipped during labor - he'd been head down the whole end of pregnancy. My labor would not progress and we ended up having to transfer to the hospital for a c-section.
So, I'm looking for advice on how to choose an OB. My midwife gave us a list of names that they recommended, but I have a million questions! Obviously, I understand that having multipes is a huge game changer, but I want to find an OB who is willing to let me try for a VBAC, is open to a breech extraction, etc. etc. (as long as that is a healthy and safe option given whatever the circumstances end up being). So, do I just start calling offices and asking these questions? Do I need to make an appt and discuss everything with each doctor? I'm so lost.
