@princessbelle:  I can’t make any sense out of her actions! I’m guessing either she or her office staff doesn’t have their facts straight with what’s going on for her schedule in October. Either way, I totally wouldn’t trust her with the birth of my child. FX for a better experience with midwife #2!

@princessbelle:  Yeah, I definitely wouldn’t want her guiding me through pregnancy! Laour, especially a home birth, can be super risky and you need someone you can put your trust in – I don’t think it’s this woman. Here’s hoping midwife number 2 is a great fit.

PITA now, but thank GOODNESS you didn’t make her your caregiver and find out what a crappy caregiver she is, later!

Good luck with the second midwife… She can’t really be worse!

When I was looking into a homebirth I had some similiar experiences. The midwives I would talk to would make me come in to see them before they told me they coudnt travel that far or they were too booked. I really dont understand why they cant tell us this over the phone. It would save everyone time.

Well, even as a midwife I’m scratching my head about this one…..we work very differently here so I can’t understand at all why she would bother having you come to the office just to then tell you she can’t provide care to you.  Seems crazy.  I would be super annoyed too!  I hope you have better luck with the next midwife.

Ugh, some people are so stupid. I would’ve told her, thanks for wasting my time!
