One other thing....
When I had my son at home, I needed to find follow up care in the postpartum.
One nurse let me in gently on an inside fact: If you've had care with a home birth midwife or other care provider, OBGYN practices do not like to take you on late in pregnancy, labor, delivery, or postpartum.
Fear of liability is one reason why its hard to transfer care, late in the game.
I'm not sure how to get around that when you are looking for an 8 wk PP visit. I ultimately had to do my own care for a 3rd degree tear, which turned out ok, luckily. <thumbs up>
