Me: blah blah should I come in sooner blah
Her: You are not yet a patient, so no one here will give you medical advice. Go back to your GP
Me: my GP told me to see a midwife, and they would monitor me.
Her: I'm just a receptionist. I can leave a note, but they won't answer you.
Me: I'm not asking for advice, just if I should come in sooner, because of this condition.
Her: There are no earlier appointments. You should have your GP refer you to our perinatologists for a high risk pregnancy.
Her: I can give the nurses a message, but they probably won't answer you.
Me: I will call you back if I need to.
I called the private practice of one of the midwives who teaches there to set up a consultation. I figure she can help me figure out if the benefit of insurance paying makes it worth going there, or if I should just use her home birth services. She will probably also be able to tell me if I should be getting blood work done yet. I am waiting for a call back, but so far the tone of the receptionist was SO much nicer.
