Re: Pregnancy
Dec 18, 2005
Hey Backpacker,

Thanks for the advice. I want C-section to be an absolute last resort. I think they are far overdone and doctors scare women into thinking they need it when they don't...

I take Valtrex 3 days a week, which is far less than twice a day when I first started 5 years ago. I have educated myself on foods to eat and foods to avoid and have taken really good care of my body, including regular chiropractic care. I am going to ween myself off of the Valtrex over the next couple of weeks while we're trying to conceive so I won't be taking it while I'm pregnant.

There are a couple holistic/alternative birthing networks in the area where I live, and I certainly intend to find an Ob Dr who practices outside of traditional Western medicine. I will have to make some changes to the herbs and supplements I take, so thanks for the advice on the oregano oil. I have seen it posted many times on this board but haven't tried it, so if there is no contraindication (I will research it as you suggested), I will definitely try it!

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 01:38 AM.
