My MWs have a back up OB. (Whom I saw twice for u/s...when my MWs refered me to him due to loss of mucus plug and over due to check on the baby) Very easy and simple, I got in the day I called

I know my MWs dealt with m/c, I don't think there's any need to be refered to an OB unless of a complication or still birth.

My MW actually couldn't find the heartbeat on the doppler at one of my appointments she tried didn't locations on my belly and everything. Of course we got worried, so we decided to have my levels tested and come back in 2 days to have them tested again. those 2 days were so long and hard. I went back and before taking my blood they used the doppler and found/heard his heartbeat- lil stinker! He still is on till this day.

our MWs if you are sent to LD with the back up OB and one of the MWs would go with you and act as your doula and advocate. If it was for an emergency transport the MW would go act as doula/advocate and you'd be transported to the closest hospital.
