Holly made a whole lot of promises during my prenatal appointments that were NOT kept during my labor and delivery experience.

She promised to be with me in the labor room and to help me through it (as a midwife should) but she opted to hang out in the physician's room the entire time. I probably saw her 3 times in 27 hours of labor.

She also promised that in the event that I have a c-section she would be in the OR with me assisting the doctor who was performing the surgery. She promised that she wouldn't "watch from the door and wave saying 'Good luck!'" as I was wheeled into the OR. That's pretty much exactly what she did. Her office appointments were covered by other doctors for her until 2:00pm - I delivered at 11:05am.

She didn't even come up to see me or check on us while we were in the hospital. I developed chorioamnionitis and my baby spent 10 days in the NICU. I was readmitted a week after having him due to a massive infection from the emergency c-section. We didn't hear a word from her.

I had done a lot of research on midwifery and that is the route I wanted to take. This experience gives midwifery a bad name and I hope she doesn't treat any other patient the way I was treated. If you're looking to have a med-free childbirth with all of the benefits of a midwife - look elsewhere and be sure to have a doula with you because this is NOT the way it should be.
