I requested my chart, from my OB clinic and my medical records from the hosptial. I got most of what I wanted...
...but then my homebirth mw, a former L&D nurse, clued me in, that I need to request my nurse's notes, aka labor notes, aka labor progress notes fromt the hosptial. After that request, I had all the good stuff.
For me, my records were all free. I called the hosptial and the clinic, to ask them how to request my records. They said I'd need to write a request letter including my SSN, & dates of the birth.
These documents are priceless to me; I am so happy and relieved to have them. A useful tool when working thru past births.
