Now that it’s officially official I can say that I’ve switched from my OB/GYN office to a midwife. I cannot express how happy this makes me. Originally, we had decided on an OB this time around but we had to switch from the office that we had used for Bridget because they moved their location and it just wasn’t convenient.
The new office tended to be a little on the crazy side. Admittedly, I didn’t do too much research, but since I’d been through it all before, I thought it really wasn’t going to be that big of a deal. And this new OB office also had a midwife so I thought it would be the best of both worlds. Boy was I wrong. One of the receptionists made crazy remarks to another receptionist type person the day of my first visit. Crazy remarks about President Obama being a Muslim and well, Muslims taking over the world or something. Remarks that I and everyone else waiting could here because there was no partition or anything. And then the midwife sort of just rubbed me the wrong way. Brendan wasn’t too sure about her either, although I did like the one OB that I saw.
So given all that, we thought we’d switch to a midwife-only practice. Of course, there really aren’t a whole lot of those, but after some looking around I found the perfect one. But they had a waiting list and I was in the third spot so I figured that I’d never make it in. Wrong again. We had our first appointment with them yesterday and it was completely wonderful. I’m so completely happy about everything.
