With my last baby (June 2009) I delivered with ISIS at N Fulton, a nearly perfect natural birth. When Margaret and Anjli left to start Intown Midwifery, I always assumed I would follow them there.
I'm 14 weeks now, and have already had three appointments (two with Intown, one with Dr Bootstaylor for an ultrasound) and the drive is just miserable. I have yet to make it in under an hour. Once it took me over an hour and a half. I have to come with my daughter, and there's no one else to watch her or help me take care of her. And, of course, the wait times at Intown are pretty bad. So that means I'm trying to entertain a nearly-3-year-old and keep her out of trouble for about 3 hours straight every time I go down there. I love Intown in theory, but I just don't know if I can do it for the rest of the pregnancy, especially as the appointments start to be more frequent.
So who do you recommend that's closer to me? I'm NW of the city in Cherokee County. Homebirth isn't an option for me (last time all I wanted to do was leave the house - I hated laboring at home), and I'm pretty sold on midwives. So who is my best bet?
Thanks in advance. :-)
