Anybody who has talked to me in the past knows how much I’ve wanted a home birth. Now that I was pregnant, there didn’t seem to be anything to stop me, so we made our first visit to the midwife we picked out. She’s a wonderful lady, and she really helped to put some of Brian’s worries to rest. She spent a lot of time with us, much more than we would have gotten from a regular doctor. We went over my diet and how I was feeling, and she weighed me and did a urine test for sugar and protein and stuff. Then she tried to hear the baby’s heartbeat with a Doppler device, but it was still too early and we couldn’t pick anything up. We left with a big stack of books from her lending library.
