I'm trying to decide whether to stick with my new OB or change to a midwife. Last pregnancy and delivery was so smooth and wonderful, but I have since changed OBs. I wasn't happy with the office staff and hour wait times there, and felt my Dr. did not completely addressed my concerns. So, I've only met the new one once at year check-up. She seems nice and I've heard great things about the office. And they have valet parking! Big plus.
I've only heard great things about the Midwives Group in my city. I'm not sure I want to go natural though (mainly for my husband's sake of severe anxiety,) and feel I may be pressured to. I haven't met with anyone yet, but am going to do a consultation. I love the more personal stance they take with patients.
Basically, I don't want to make the wrong decision and then be stuck going to one or the other. I also don't want to waste my time (hour drive) and copays going to each place trying to figure it out. But I do want to make the best decision for my new baby, pregnancy, and family. Does anyone have advice or experiences with midwives? I'm also only 5w1d, so I have a couple weeks before my first appt.
