    I wish I could go back and say NO to an unnecessary induction for the birth of my DD, which ended in a c-section.

    (And in regards to writing a letter to an OB... my old OB wouldn't let me VBAC... so after I switched docs at 30 weeks and had my VBAC, I DID send my old OB a birth announcement, complete with a handwritten note on the back thanking him for 30 weeks of prenatal care and letting him know, that yes I DID in fact have a successful vaginal birth. And I encouraged him to let his other prior c-section patients to do the same. )

    I wish I would have learned more about birth options and stood up for my rights.

    As far as bf I wish that I had read and listened to the lc who told me about thrush and to take probiotics as soon as I got home, would have avoided 6 weeks of it. And I wish I never ever would have listened to the lc that told me to just pump and bottle feed exclusively, that added weeks of issues to getting bf down correctly.

    Nothing LC wise, because they didn't help at all except for the one nurse who thankfully showed me how to squish my nipple like a big mac for little mouths.

    I wish I had enough faith in nature to do my home birth, and enough self discipline to hypnobirth without pushing, my LO ended up with a huge knot on his head from zooming down the birth canal into my pubic bone!
