They give a crap?
I had my 1st 3 babes in a hospital with an OB. She showed up towards the end of every labor, checked on me during labor, made me wait for long periods of time for my appts, sometimes with reason,s ometimes without. She never spent more than 5 minutes with me during a visit. Her nurse did most of the work, weighed, measured, listened to heart beat, collected urine.
I had my last baby at home with a midwife. I am plannin gon having this one at home as well. Each of my prenatals is an hour long. We talk about all aspects of my pregnancy and any concerns are actually addressed, not shurgged off. I get answers to my questions and helpful suggestions for problems I might be having. We are friends! My midwife was there for lots of my ds's birth. She was always reight by me during the three hours I pushed. She was able to support me and trust me and not tell me I needed drugs or a c-section.
honestly, my midwfie cares about ME and my baby and not my insurance money or her malpractice insurance.
