Sorry if I got your name wrong... And sorry for taking so long to respond (I never think to come on here when I have a free moment to nest). I loved my m/w. We talked frequently through email all through out my pregnancy and she gave me her business card w/ phone # in case I really needed to get ahold of her.
There's a team of midwives on call at all times at the hospital and you can't be guaranteed that your m/w will be delivering your LO. But if they are on call when you go into labor than they usually try to deliver your baby.
It's funny... Mimi was working at the hospital the day before and after I went into labor so she missed me by hours She even told me when she'd be there cause she wassure I'd go w/in a few days of seeing her But she wasable to check me and see the baby when she got there. She was so happy to see my name on the board
All the m/w's there were really nice!
