Hi, I've seen many flavors of this topic and I am looking for the most recent success stories out there. I know Virtua Voorhees has a very high c-section rate and a lot of interventions. Before I even conceived, I tried finding a practice with a midwife hoping that they would be gung ho for a natural birth. I went to a practice with 2 doctors and 1 midwife and, during my preconception appointment, she already started down the path of telling me that I can try whatever I want, but should be open to interventions. She said I would likely have a sunny side up baby and delivering naturally would be near impossible. I was hoping for a more supportive response to a woman who wants to do everything in her power to have a natural no intervention hospital birth. My mom had 7 healthy unmedicated natural births and I feel like I'm already being set up to fail.
Has anyone had a natural birth at Virtua Voorhees? What practice did you use? What did you have to do beforehand to get your practice on board with your plan?
