I have had two homebirths and a hospital birth so far. This past pregnancy I had some thryoid issues which were controlled by medication. My CNM referred me to an endocrinologist and everything was fine. My understanding is that he didn't even report anything back to the midwife (she complained about this :) )
If we have another, I'm considering using an underground midwife (because we like her, feel comfortable with her, and feel that she is competent and experienced). However, I will probably need the medication again. They said to call to get bloodwork as soon as I get a BFP so I'm assuming I could go some time saying that I haven't decided who I'm seeing yet but I don't know if I would be able to pull that off for a whole pregnancy.
Will an endo see me without the name of an OB/CNM while pregnant or am I going to have to give the name of an OB/CNM?
