When choosing a mainstream provider…the responsibility of researching all the options & decisions you have to make falls on YOU, entirely. As does having the ability to advocate for yourself.
I can promise you that no one in that office is going to go to bat for you when it comes to respecting your choices. You have to have it in yourself and your partner. You must be on the same page and can verbalize what you want in a kind way.
Learn to say “thank you for the information you have provided, I respect your decisions, but can my partner and I have a moment to discuss this privately?”
The best way to support your Medical Freedom during your pregnancy journey is to make sure you and your partner are empowered. Take in as much info as you can, talk to other moms, read read and read some more, and NEVER SETTLE for an OBGYN or birth worker that doesn’t feel supportive.
Follow your intuition mama, it’s there for a reason.
