Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Has anyone had a midwife through this process

I am sort of concerned about what I should be doing at this point.  When I got pregnant for the first time, I decided that I really wanted to go with a midwife, used them through my first natural miscarriage.  However, now that I am considering getting a d and c, I am not sure if I should stay with the midwives or go with an OB.  I have another ultrasound tomorrow before I schedule my D & C and I am just unsure as to what I should be doing.

  • Sorry, I don't have any advice as I didn't work with a midwife, but I just wanted to say I'm so sorry for your loss.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.  A midwife CANNOT perform a D&C, so if you stay with her the D&C would be done by whatever Dr she works under.  I had a MW and if I had needed the D&C (which I did not end up needing) the Dr would have done it.  HTH.  ((((BIG HUGS))))
