: I love my new midwife!
I switched this month from an OB to a midwife, and this morning I had my first real (not a consultation) appointment with her, and I just had to share how happy I am that I made the switch
Not only is the midwife on board with avoiding routine interventions, the whole office is so much more warm and welcoming, and this hospital follows the WHO's guidelines for a "Baby Friendly Hospital" (24-hour rooming in, no pacifiers, etc.). After we discussed that I didn't want to do an ultrasound unless there was an indication something might be wrong (b/c of limitations w/ my insurance), she even gave me a free ultrasound there in the office (not diagnostic, but just so I could see the baby).
I could go on and on, but I'll just say that having a good care provider is amazing!
