At my 30 week appointment with her, she didn’t seem to care to keep me informed of anything she was doing, such as measuring my fundal height and listening to the baby’s heart beat. I had to ask her to please tell me these things and what her findings are, so I can be informed as well. Then at my 34 week appointment she tried doing these things without a word again, so I had to remind her to please keep me informed. However, what upset me the most was her blatant disrespect for my wishes at this appointment. At my previous 32 week appointment, Karen had mentioned that baby’s position felt “suspicious” as far as if he’s head down or breech. Regina did not feel for my baby’s position, so I specifically asked her no less than 3 times if she could please feel for his position to give me an idea of what she thinks his position is at this time. Her excuses ranged from saying her hands were too cold to that it doesn’t matter because we’re doing an ultrasound in 2 weeks. I told her I didn’t mind if her hands were cold and that I am aware that we’re doing an ultrasound at 36 weeks and that I understand this is the only true reliable way to know baby’s position. However, every single midwife I’ve had for both my pregnancies now has still always felt for the baby to give me an idea of position. I told her I didn’t want to have to wait another 2 weeks now without any idea of what his current position is. She disregarded any of this and simply said again that we’ll know in 2 weeks and left the room. It is causing me a lot of stress and anxiety now at the possibility that she could be the one to deliver my baby, because if she can’t even make me feel informed or empowered in an office visit, then I can’t imagine she’ll keep me informed during my labor and delivery. If she can’t respect my simple requests and wishes during an office visit, then I’m worried I’ll be ignored during labor and delivery. I am more nervous now as a second time mom than I ever was for my first because of her. In addition to this, she also was very rude about my decision to not want to be prescribed any formal birth control post partum. I explained that I plan to exclusively breast feed and I track my cycles, and I am aware that these are not fully reliable ways of birth control but that we are open to more children. She snapped back a snide comment about how I’m going to be really exhausted still being up with a newborn and pregnant again. As an experienced mother and a nurse of 7 years, I did not appreciate her making me feel bad about my personal decision about my healthcare with this condescending comment.
