I thought maybe some of you could offer your opinions and advice with this.
I get a cold, off putting feeling from my midwife. She is very opinionated and not very friendly. She knows her stuff and is very confident in her abilities. She has a 5 month old and seems very preoccupied with her family life. She often complais of feeling tired and never having a break. She also dresses sloppily with wrinkled clothes.
I recently met with another midwife because mine was on vacation. It really opened my eyes of how comfortable I can feel with someone else and, in turn, how uncomfortable I feel with my midwife at times.
What would you do? I feel awkward switching midwives since the agency is so small. Even asking if other midwives are available makes me feel bad. Should I suck it up and ask for someone new? I know my current midwife will do a good job at keeping me and baby safe. I just wonder if there is better...
Maybe I should call the other midwifery in my area to see if I can switch places???
