My baby girl and I saw our MW for the last time today. I'm totally bummed now. Since this baby is our last, it feels like I'm officially closing the book on the pregnancy chapter of my life... and it's not easy. We had the same MW with our son, so we met her 4 years ago. She cared for me throughout two pregnancies, and cared for 2 of my three newborn babies. It's just hard to close the door on that.
Anyway, I thought I'd post here since I'm sure someone among you can understand.
I am totally lurking here, but I can completely understand. I was so sad at my 6 week MW visit because I knew we were done having babies. Fortunately she does well-woman visits and I know I can call her any old time... but its not really the same. Pregnancy is an emotionally intense time and you form a bond... ((((((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))
If you are anywhere near me, come to the birthcenter on mondays 11 to 1. I've been hosting a post partum support group for some time now and all moms are welcome! We get overseen by a midwife too, in case there are some real issues.
Or if you're not near me, how about starting a group and inviting your MW to come?
