• I am considering putting off calling the mw, so it ends up being a 'whoops'. my husband would not go for a uc. last time i labored fine on my own (with dh) the midwife arrived after transition. she was there for the pushing, but i feel like her presence did interfere with my focus. this may be due mostly to the fact she was a stranger -my mw's backup- and not the mw i had grown to know and like. wh
