Wonderful Midwife

I had always heard about how much better my friends liked their midwife over any OB/GYN they had had in the past. When I first found out I was pregnant we went to the local nurse-midwife for an interview. My husband and I were extremly pleased with her. I really enjoyed my pregnancy that much more due to my midwife I think. She spent a lot of time with me in my visits, never rolled her eyes or acted inconvenienced by my questions and even gave me her e-mail and cell phone numbers. By the end of my pregnancy I felt like I had a friend, not a medical professional watching over me during delivery. My daughter and I have had a really rough start with breastfeeding but my midwife has been there and supported us every step of the way. My OB (with my first child) did not see me until my six week appointment and never once even asked how breastfeeding was going! My husband and I were very please with how the delivery of our daughter went at home as well. If we have another child, we will definitly go with a midwife!
