(Just need to vent a bit)
After a great homebirth experience with DD#2, I planned to do another homebirth (waterbirth hopefully) with this LO.
I called my MW from DD#2's birth and set up an initial consult last week. It was great catching up with her and showing off how big/healthy DD#2 is. The appt went well, I got my packet of info to fill out and set up another appt for March. I felt so at ease..
Then..she e-mails me today. She's moving away to accept a job at Planned Parenthood. She cannot keep me as a client because she will be too far away.
Besides feeling shocked..I'm completely livid that she e-mailed me instead of calling me. Is that reasonable (or just hormonal)?
I had such a hard time finding a competent midwife in my county and now I'm faced with doing this search again. I really liked my MW and am trying to be understanding but for now I just feel crushed..simply crushed.
I e-mailed her back requesting my records as I'll need to take them with me to the next MW I chose. I called 2 practices and set up a consult with 1 additional practice tommorow.
