Um, yeah, just like that - I spent two weeks scrubbing my house down before the first home visit! I figured my midwives would want to get to know the house, but they never even left the living room. (Oh well, it felt good having the house clean. ) There really wasn't much to the home visit - it was just like a regular prenatal visit, with a few extra questions about where to put the tub, preferences during labor, etc.
Let us know how yours goes!

LOL, I had my first home visit 2 weeks ago and I cleaned like a madwoman too. My midwife actually commented on how my house was too clean and she could see the vacuum marks on the carpet, LOL. She did take a tour of the house, wanted to know where the bathrooms were... where I wanted to labor, etc. It was basically a prenatal visit though, I laid on the couch while she measured me and listened to the heartbeat. I actually have another home visit tomorrow morning, so I'm planning on cleaning like a madwoman again!
All my visits were at home and I cleaned, too. I miss having my midwife over weekly because it guaranteed that I vacuumed and had the kitchen spotless at least once a week My visits were very laid back, she had me pee in a cup, checked my vitals, checked the baby and then we chatted for the rest of the time. She was usually here for about an hour.
