WOW Helga, I'm exhausted just reading your account. I am so sorry your birthing experience turned out to be so grueling! I can certainly understand why you don't trust the medical staff to take good care of you.

From experience, I can tell you that each birth is different and should be easier the second time around. I hope that you can express your fears to your new midwife and that she can help you through this. I know how important relaxation is to get you through those contractions but I can imagine how difficult that is for you. A good midwife should be able to give you more confidence and coping skills.

Wishing you a healthy pregnancy and uncomplicated delivery.
