I like to do stuff early. We researched and chose our midwives well before we conceived (and before we started TTC), and it was so nice to just know who to call that day I got my BFP (to reserve a spot). Now I'm on the hunt for more practitioners. I want to find:
- a pediatrician
- a daycare provider (preferably in-home, part-time)
- a childbirth educator
- a doula (maybe, and hopefully same person as childbirth educator)
I am hoping my MW will have some recommendations, or else the other women she's caring for who've already had babies in the area. I'm really excited about the group prenatal sessions we will have. Some of the prenatal appointments are done community-style, so we can have a chance to talk with other moms, get recommendations, rent birth tubs from one another, etc.
Anyone else have advice about the search for these practitioners?
