Re: Changing doc/midwife in the middle of pregnancy?

I kind of wish I would have switched. I told my OB I really wanted to try to go for an unmedicated natural birth and she snickered at me. Not to mention the hospital she delivers at is out of network for my insurance, but the only local one with a NICU, which is important to DH. This is our first pregnancy though, maybe next time I'll be able to talk him into a home birth

Re: Changing doc/midwife in the middle of pregnancy?

So the update is that I did end up switching and had my first appt with the new midwife today. I LOVE her and am SO happy that I switched! It was no hassle, and she was so attentive and so sweet with my DD who was with me. It's a bit of a drive to get to her office, but worth it. Plus she's in the same medical group as my endocrinologist (since I have thyroid issues) so she has access to all that info and is way more up to date on what's going on with that than my old doc. Definitely a good switch!

Yay! Sometimes we just have to remind ourselves that change is good...don't know why it's so hard, though, lol.

Yay! I have never regretted changing dr's. I actually switched 3 times my first pregnancy. Glad things are working out for you.

Re: Changing doc/midwife in the middle of pregnancy?

I know, I was so worried about the switch and it ended up being not a big deal at all. Change is definitely good in this case! And I'm really happy to have started up with her right as my appointments start being more often (I'm into the every 2 weeks already!?)

YAY!!! Glad the switch was painless and the right thing for you guys. We also just switched and it's like night-and-day. I'm wishing I"d switched over the midwife earlier
