would that change at all if your client was doing concurrent care?
it would depend on if she wanted to see me that often, BUT
the "care" women receive from an OB is vastly different than what she'd receive with a midwife. Plus, I value prenatal care with a midwife as being more abotu knowing what she wants for her birth, building trust and communication skills, etc. If it was just about peeing in a cup or doing blood pressure then it would be a non-issue. It's not. I'm not going to push her to do vaginal exams or tell her how "huge" her baby is getting, but you can bet she'll get that kind of "care" in most OB offices in the last month.
So for me, I am adaptable based on what a woman wants, what she feels she needs and what I need as her midwife. It is very different from woman to woman.
But based solely on her seeing an OB, then no, it wouldn't change my desire to see her more often towards the end. If for nothing else to pick up the pieces of doubt that have been instilled by the medical model so close to her birthing time.
