I met w/ Patricia Scane for the 1st time on Tuesday. She was A-MA-ZING. I seriously wanted to hug her! She immediately made me feel so calm. I am so ridiculously pumped to have this baby now!!! She is out of Henry Ford (only delivers @ West Bloomfield). I went to the Troy location for my appointment, but can schedule appointments @ West Bloomfield to meet the other midwives, too. All (there are 5) have either homebirth or birthing center experience or both. Patricia used to deliver out of Providence & the ABC but was asked to look @ West Bloomfield's new L&D & fell in love w/it. I've never been to it so I'm super excited. I guess all the rooms were designed after alternative birthing suites & each has it's own whirlpool tub.
Also, Patricia was super supportive about my wanting a VBAC (WHOO!!!). I cannot wait till my next appointment w/ her!
Oh& the best part- our BIG u/s is scheduled! Yay! November 23rd! There were several locations we could go to but I wanted to go to West Bloomfield since I've never been there. Hopefully, DH & I can check out the hospital while we're there. We're going to go in January for their "Baby Shower", where patients come in for a tour & to ask questions.
