Midwife working in Hospital Setting - First Appointment??

Hi All! I will be using a Midwife at one of our well known hospitals where I live. The midwife does work under a physician... any idea what goes on during the first appointment in this type of setting with a midwife?? I keep hoping I will get an ultrasound during the first trimester, but my sister-in-law saw a physician with her past two pregnancies and never had first trimester ultrasounds-- may have been insurance related--not sure. But just curious if anyone has had any experiences with midwives in hospital settings.


Thanks!

  • There is a thread on the first page here titled 1st Midwife Appt Experiences or something like that, and there has been quite a few replies from people there :)

    Yes, I saw that one, but from what I read, it sounded like these midwives weren't necessarily in a hospital setting-- am just curious how different the hospital setting is with midwives or if it is similar to what goes on in midwife private practices. :)

    You can ask questions on similar threads. Most midwifes, in my area at least, work in hospitals.

  • The responses on that sound like hospital based midwives to me, too. It is assumed when you're talking about MW that you're talking about hospital based because that's the norm. Most people will specify if it's a home birth midwife. Like PP said, it would've been totally fine to ask on that thread, "are you guys talking about hospital based midwives?"

    VitaLuna and MagnumJ : I apologize if I caused an issue by posting this thread. Please feel free to delete it if it is a problem -- I have tried deleting it and don't seem to be able to -- not sure if there are Admins for these boards, both of you ladies sound like you may be Admins. I am a RN myself, and the city where I live there are more midwives that are private practice/home based then hospital. As said-- I apologize if this caused some sort of issue.

    It's not a problem at all! We're just trying to organize the board a little bit so that posts on the same or similar topics get lumped together.

    I don't think they were saying it was an issue at all. I think they were just trying to help out since the other post has several response and people tend to post less if a topic sounds the same as one they already responded to. Don't take offense. :)

    What @MrsJG3 said. You're going to get better info from the post that was already posted today than you probably will with this one, hence the link from PP. People tend to respond to the first one, but not the many duplicate others that there are on various topics.

    I'm not taking offense -- just don't need to keep getting told to post on the other thread dealing with midwives-- I have gotten the memo. :) If anyone knows how to delete threads, I will be more than happy to delete this thread.
