and the ob doc I normally see arent going to be there and I have to see the midwife? I never met this midwife. I am so nervous. Does anyone see a midwife and ob doc? I also want/need to be checked. I am hoping she is gentle with me. Are midwifes like obgyn docs?Answer Question

no MW's are NOT like OB's- they have a totally different operating system than an OB, and i would be a lot more likely to trust an MW than an ob, they look at pregnancy as a natural course of events, not a medical condidion. you're more likely to get more helpful and practical info from her... so don't be nervous. also, MOST MW's don't believe in "checking" for the sake of checking, because it can potentially intorduce unnecessary bacteria... unless you're feeling something, its not necessary to be checked at all. they are also A LOT more gentle than most OB's... so don't fret. i've had really great relationships with my MW's, and still do, though my youngest is almost 2!
