My conception appointment was today and as luck would have it the doctor I was scheduled to meet with was called out to deliver a baby. The practice I was going to offers OB and midwifery care so I wanted to talk about co-care with an OB and an outside midwife willing to do homebirth. Anyway, I got to meet with a midwife instea and although she does hospital deliveries only she assured me that she offers the same care as the midwives who do home birth (absolutely no intervention). Overall I'm thinking I'm okay with this option.

She said they don't start doing prenatal care until 7-8 weeks so if I get my BFP I won't get to see my bub in picture form for over a month. Boo!

Too bad your doctor was called out but at least you still got to meet the midwife! Sounds really nice that they have a combination practice. I think most offices don't really see you until the 7-8 week point unless you are having issues (and some offices are 12!). Fx you get your BFP soon!

My doctor doesn't do scans until 10+ weeks. It's a killer, but hopefully by next year after we move I can find a different doctor.
Sounds like you have a good place to go though. I like the idea of a shared practice. I'm thinking about looking into midwives more. I want a hospital birth in case anything goes wrong but I want things as natural as possible as well...
