So, my questions are that with a midwife I do not have to have a pap until after the baby is born or any ultrasounds - can I refuse the pap from the OB doctor? I 'know' my rights say I can refuse whatever I want but I do not want to throw a fit and cause issues since I can only go to one hospital/clinic (the same one as my cardios). Does anyone else refuse the pap? Do they HAVE to check me at the end too?! I would rather knowone check me... These things have NOTHING to do with my heart or why I am being transfered so why should they, right?!
My doctor never did a pap on me at the beginning of pregnancy. He usually did it at my 6 week PP visit. I thought this was standard procedure.
