ive had two, but that was because i had a sections (i was planning on having one in labour though), but i can honestly say they are fantastic, there slightly uncomfortable when they are putting them in but not half as bad as i expected, and at my last section two hours later i could sit myself up.
Your midwife shouldnt make her opinions clear to you, if this is what you want find someone who will answer your questions with an unbiased veiw!
Good luck xx
