I am lurking from the UC board but I am currently 25 weeks pregnant. I used to see a midwife before I was pregnant and when my Drs told me we could start trying they also told me that I needed to find an OB not a midwife as well as consult a high risk (perinatologist) Dr. Because anyone with IBD (in remission or no)t is considered high risk. I dont know if all Drs agree on this but I have seen it mentioned on CCFA as well. Just because you see an OB doesnt mean that you have to have a medicated birth. It just means that a home birth would not be an option.
Hope this helps, and good luck when you decide to start trying!
