Shortly after my traumatic birth and subsequent dropping of my after care, my midwife sort of vanished for the birthing scene in the area.  I usually do a search for her around DD's birthday and I found that she now has her business back up and running and that she also has another midwife working with her. 


It felt like a punch to the gut seeing all her birth affirmations and crap that she spewed to me on her site and know the reality of the care she provides.


I went and left reviews on the health care rating sites that I could find her on, but I'm afraid it won't be enough.

That sucks. My MW is also practicing merrily in my area still. I just try to let people know my experience by cursing my local NCB, HB, and LLL circles, as well as watching for posts here on MDC from people who are looking for a HBMW.

I think you and I are in the same shoes where our trauma is directly related to the "care" of our MW, rather than birth itself. It sucks so badly and I don't want anyone else to ever be in my shoes. I just try to reassure myself that she is learning from her mistakes with me and most likely will never screw up quite so badly again.
