Re: Midwife Users Check In :)

I am hoping for a 3rd home birth, with the same midwife as the last 2 babies.

So far, I've been seeing an OB with this baby. My old practice and hospital is over 60 miles away, and I need something closer to home this time. Unfortunately, there are no midwives within 50 miles of my town .
I am in Georgia too! We are in the metro Atlanta area. My oldest son is also a May 07 baby.

I just had my first MW appointment today and I am in LOVE with the practice. It was so refreshing to tell them I am still breastfeeding DS2 (15 months) and to get "excellent" as a response. They are also moving to a new office next week which is supposed to be much larger than the one they are currently in.

I feel like I will finally get the birth I've been hoping for since DS1. I had OBs with my first two because I didn't think I could find a midwife that our insurance would cover. There are many things that I'd change about the labor and delivery of my first two boys. I talked with my midwife today about some of the issues from the last birth and she couldn't believe that doctors get away with stuff like it. It's just inappropriate really. We're talking about having a baby which women have done successfully without doctors for thousands of years.

I'll be delivering in a hospital because there are NO birthing centers within 2 hours of me. Isn't that sad? I live in such a huge city and there isn't ONE. Although, one is scheduled to be opened in March 2013 but that's a little late for this baby. The hospital I'm delivering at offers water birthing so I am SO excited for that. I believe homebirths in this area aren't quite legal? Not 100% on that though.

This is #2, and #1 was in a hospital. I was NOT happy with that experience. I'm interviewing a home birth midwife tomorrow. I would consider going to a birth center, but the two closest are about 1hr and 1.5 hr away! I'm not concerned with a fast labor, just being uncomfortable driving to and then home with the newborn afterward.

Birthing center for us after a hospital birth with my first. What excites me most is that my daughter LOVES going to the birth center and visiting the midwifes. She is so comfortable there, as opposed to and OB or doctor's office. It's a great thing!

Re: Midwife Users Check In :)

This is my first birth, but I knew from the beginning I wanted a midwife. I had planned for a home birth, but it just wasn't feasible this time around, so I'll be going to a birthing center that I have very high hopes for.
