I've been having appointments in my own home with my midwife since I was 8 weeks pregnant, now we're starting to see her more frequently every 2 weeks starting this monday, and then every week at 37 weeks.
I know that if I were going with a traditional ob/gyn I'd be getting pelvic exams regularly and lots of testing~ do homebirth midwives do any sort of physical pelvic exams later on in the pregnancy (to check cervical dilation??) or is it super hands off? What about group B strep test? I figure that's something I can do myself.... I pee on a little stick every appt that checks glucose/protein in urine so I'd assume she'd just let me swab myself too.
just curious...... don't really feel like asking her.
