in areas of professionalism, Cindy Grijalva covers her ground. she seems well educated and trained. however i was not very happy with my level of care in preparing for our delivery of our first child. i may be expecting to much in this day and age. without getting into all the specifics of prenatal checkups and delivery, i will say that it seems almost impossible to have a all natural childbirth while using the western model of medicine. WE DID! THis was with no real support from Grijalva. She came to the hospital for 5 minutes ( her office day) and recommended pitocin. which i did not use or need. then after our success of all natural delivery she came to our postpartum room and said "we tried to be patient with you." i was positive for GBS. i had to have antibiotics during delivery, i wish she had told me this would strip me and my baby of good bacteria (YEAST)....and to recommend probiotics after delivery to replace the lost bacteria. to blame my ob would be unfair and ignorant. we as mothers and mothers to be are responsible for our health and our birth needs more than anyone else. however it is sad that our country has strayed so far from the basics of childbirth. in the industry of medicine and making money we have the let system disregard that our bodies are meant to have babies. i am grateful for modern medicine in many ways. BUT my pregnancy was a very normal healthy one and we just did not need medical intervention. it is too bad that the people who go into a profession to help somehow lose their way. without our Doula and some of the nurses at CPMC we would have fallen into the intimidation of "the hospitalization of childbirth." if you look at what the hospital bills the insurance (around $15,000) and the cost of a midwife ($1,000-5,000) it would seem obvious that our society needs respect and should re-embrace this age old form of medicine.

IF POSSIBLE THE MOTHER AND THE CHILD DESERVE THE EXPERIENCE OF NATURAL CHILDBIRTH...!!!!
