Last midwife appointment

We had our last appointment with the midwives this week. The way it works is you see them during your pregnancy - once a month until a certain point and then every 2 weeks and eventually every week - and for 6 weeks with your newborn.

It's a great system with a lot of support. You really build a relationship with your caregiver so it was bittersweet to say goodbye.

I could go on and on about how much we loved having a midwife for both pregnancies, but my time for blogging is limited these days. So I'll just say, for anyone planning on getting pregnant, I would really recommend researching midwifery care. It really is the way to go for a low-risk pregnancy.

Now if only our city could get a birth center......

  1. I wish I had gone the midwife route with at least one of my kids. Guess I won't get to try since we're done!
