I don't know about you but I've had such trouble with midwives... my first midwife told me that I would need to be induced on a day to suit her because she was going on holiday and coupled with the fact that she could never remember my name, I decided to turn her loose on another poor soul!
My new midwife is from another planet!!!! I asked her three questions at our last visit...
1) I'm asthmatic, can I use the etonox gas during labour?
2) How do I go about hiring the TENS machine for pain relief?
3) I'm getting heart palpatations, is this normal?
So, she couldn't answer any of these questions and told me she would have to phone the hospital to find out. SHE PICKS UP MY TV REMOTE CONTROL AND STARTS DIALLING!!!!!
I waited for a moment to see if she was actually serious and when she put it to her ear, I asked her if she wanted to use my phone... I gave her my phone and she handed it back to me to dial for her because she didn't know how to use it...
WEIRD, she knows how to dial out on a TV remote!!!!
I've lost complete faith in her abilities and am starting to question whether she is actually qualified!!!! She cannot answer any of my questions and I'm left feeling like I'm a high maintenance pregnant woman... She believes my baby is head down but she also believes my remote control is a telephone... I feel like I want a second opinion because I'm concerned my baby is not head down and I'm 36 weeks...
What do you all think? Am I being silly about this?
