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 have not gone through this myself, but have had chapters close in my life and it is terribly sad.

Can your MW still do your well-women visits? Mine can and I will be going to her for my annuals. I really love the practice and both midwives. I can't imgaine going back to an OB for annuals either.

Hang in there hon.

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))))))))))))))))))))))

Unfortunately not. They just do pregnancy until 6 weeks pp.

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?
