Congratulations! You are headed on the journey of a lifetime. Nothing is more magical than accepting a new soul into your life. Babies, whether they are planned or unplanned, are a joy once they enter your life.
I’m excited that you have found our little space on the internet and have become interested in midwifery care being apart of your journey as well. You may have a million questions rolling around in your head right now. I know that feeling for sure because I was there six times myself. I look forward to answering those questions for sure but, of course, one at a time please. This post is to answer one of the most commonly asked questions I get when folks first find out about their impending baby.
I’m pregnant. What do I do now to get started with midwifery care?
4. Come to your appointment with any questions or concerns about entering into midwifery care. The midwife you are interviewing will be able to straightforwardly answer the questions that you have. Take notes so, when you and your partner are deciding which midwife is right for you, the answers won't get mixed up.
5. Within a week or so of your appointment place a call to your chosen midwife and, if you see fit, the other midwives you interviewed as well.
