Just found out my midwife moved 5 hours away...

Sooo. I haven't heard from my midwife, I knew she was moving but I didn't realise she was moving 5 hours away. I stayed at my parents house this last week because my mom took care of the kids since I'm supposed to be doing as much resting as possible bc I was getting regular strong crampy bh's. So I missed our appointment. Well i keep trying to get ahold of her but she hasn't returned any phone calls or texts or even messages on fb.
I'm really worried that 1-she's backing out on me 2-she's too far away and won't make it to the birth even if she was able to keep doing our prenatal care ( I have super fast births). I really don't want to go to the hospital at all and hb midwives are hard to come by here, so if I need to get looking I need to start now! I'm so annoyed!

Oh no, I agree with PP, she really should have notified you or at least kept in contact to let you know what her thoughts are about being able to attend the birth or continue to provide prenatal care. I can't imagine having a care provider 5 hours away for my birth. I hope you can find someone new... Sorry you have to deal with the stress of changing midwives so late in the game.

I feel *really* stupid!! She moved to a different town with the same name that is actually closer to us! I"m not usually into drama, but I let myself get ahead of the information. Really really dumb. I created a lot of drama in my head this last week :P

Well, good then! I'm just glad you've got somebody lined up! That would be horrible to get your plans tossed at the last minute.
