not from your birth club, saw your post on the new post search.
A few thoughts.
For three of my hb's my old mw always checked my iron and it was low so I would take liquid chorophyll. I always bleed like crazy after birth.
birth #4 came with a new mw. she never checked iron and I never took chlorophyll. I didn't bleed heavily like what I normally did. talked to new mw about it and another mw she worked with discovered that taking extra iron while preggo made a woman more prone to heavy bleeding. so she no longer checks iron levels. woman normally have lower iron levels its just part of our body getting the baby and us ready for birth. This was also my first baby not to have jaundice.
good mws imo know where everything is but dont expect everything to be in one place or ready.
those mws sound way to picky. i have to but wonder if there isnt something else bothering them and they are using the iron and stuff not being 'ready' as an excuse?
I went to the appointment that I had scheduled today to ask for my records and birth assistant fee back and they weren't there. The receptionist said that they were at a delivery and that there was a new intern doing the appointments. So I'll have to call them later and ask them to fax it. Also, the receptionist kept saying that they had to fax the records to the "new doctor's office" and that she may not be able to give it to me. Can they do that?
