  • I will be looking for a doctor. I had wonderful doctors with both my children.

    With this baby I started seeing a midwife and she was just awful! She was rude and hurt me while doing the exam (I have had MANY exams done and not once has it ever left me in pain for hours afterward) and when I tried to ask her questions she had no idea what she was talking about. I met with a couple other midwives since then and they all gave me same impression that they are uneducated wannabe doctors.

  • Pregnancy is not a medical condition, there is no reason to have a doctor attend unless you have developed a condition which is potentially life threatening.

    No one delivered my babies, I birthed them.

    Congrats on your MW, I had an OB for my first birth and I would NEVER go that route again. I had a MW for the 2nd and 3rd.
