Aw, that's too bad that the m/w's haven't phoned back. This is such a frustrating situation- I only wish the letters could help immediately. I feel for you, I really do.
The OB that I saw was Dr Margaret Morris- her office is in the Rehab hospital at HSC and she delivers out of Women's. I always sort of thought that if she was debating going into obstetrics now, she would change and become a midwife. She came into my appt, sat down, took off her shoes and leaned back and said, "So how are you feeling?". She was of course, a typical OB in the way that she pretty much assumed that I would end up with PIH again, but let it take it's own course. I ended up doing 24 hr urine collection for the last 10 weeks of my pg, along with weekly bloodwork. Sometimes the results were off, but she let me continue with my m/w's until things got bad- which they luckily never did.
When my m/w's suggested her, they said that she was one OB that they liked to work with (at Women's at any rate- I was admant about *not* birthing at St-B). They said that even if my BP were to go up and I had to be induced, she would most likely let them (the m/w's) do their thing and just keep an eye on things. She was pretty good with standing back and letting them do their job- she understood that the mom had the relationship with the m/w's, not her.
Come to think of it, I did go back after my ds was born- I had PP bleeding for 3.5 months. She did a pelvic and took some blood. Her theory was that my uterus was just being sluggish after giving birth 3 times in 5 years and it would clear up on its own. She didn't even want to send me for a u/s until it had gone on for over 4 months (which luckily it didn't- but I got my period back at 4 months and that sucked). She was just as nice and mild mannered that visit as well- asked me how the birth went etc...
I hope that you have good luck with this new OB, if that's where your path leads you. I hear some good things about the Vic. And it's close to you too.
I'm part of the Winnipeg South LLL group and you're right- it is lots of fun! I look forward to our twice monthly meetings a lot, even my kids do ;o)
Take care and keep us updated!
