So I really wasn't loving (or even liking) the doctor I was seeing, and I had wanted to find a midwife. But I didn't know where to look, or how it would work with insurance, and where to deliver etc etc....
The hospital I was already going to had a midwife section so I made an appoint and went and saw them, and I really didnt get any different feel between them and the doctor.
Lucky for me a women came in to get her hair done and after chatting with her for about an hour I found out she was a midwife. She gave me tons of information and recommended me to the American Fork hospital nurse midwives (since we (greg) really wanted me to deliver in an actual hospital).
I finally got around to making an appointment with them and went in this morning to check it out.
I LOVED IT!
There office was really nice, and all the staff. They have 6 midwives there that you switch around with, meet all of them and then whoever is on call when you go into labor delivers you.
We met with Roberta today and she was AWESOME. Exactly what Id been looking for. She talked to us. She asked us questions. She answered my questions, in detail. And was just really nice and animated and seemed alot more hands on then the other stinky doctor.
She told me a little about the two different hospitals they deliver at.
She showed me some stretches to do for my back pain, and demonstrated them for us. She was pretty flexible!
I think mostly she just made me feel comfortable and welcome so I could actually not be nervous and remember what I wanted to ask.
She measured me up, im at 23 inches
and we got to hear the heartbeat, always fun.
Next appointment I get to drink the yummy diabetes sugar test drink! Cant wait :-P
The office seemed pretty busy for 9 in the morning, and G overheard someone saying how slow it was today, so I guess there is usualy a big wait.
But I'd rather wait there then get in fast to the other place
