I am 27 weeks pregnant and have been seeing Kathy Sloan and really have no complaints about her (she is the only midwife I have seen there due to my schedule.) Although at my last visit, she seemed really off...
She explained some paperwork I should fill out, twice with out realizing she just talked about it, would stop mid sentence and say she had no idea what she was talking about and switch topics. I felt like I was dealing with, I don't know, someone with Alzheimer's? It was so discouraging!!
My goal is to have a natural birth with little to no interference in a birth tub. I live in Northern Baltimore and her office is close, and Mercy is not too far away. I had a bad experience with my first child's birth (home birth) and even now saying I want a natural birth.... I will do anything, and have any intervention done if my provider even senses at all that something is off. So really I need my provider to really be on top of things. And my last visit with Kathy just made me sad. I will do anything to have this delivery go well, but the thought that I will have to start a search all over for a new provider just is so disheartening to me!
So please any advise, comments on Kathy and the other midwives at her office (recent experience would be most helpful- mostly because I have already heard how wonderful she has been with others in the past), any recommendations in the Northern Baltimore area of OBs/midwives that have hospital privileges in the area, or any other comments related to this.
Thanks so much.
