My midwife doesn't require ultrasounds, so it's up to the patient whether or not to get them. My plan was to only have the 20 week anatomy scan but I ended up with 4 . Not my ideal but it kept me sane since I went so far past my edd. I ended up having a 13 week u/s because DH really pushed for it, anatomy scan, 36 week scan to check my partial previa, and a bio physical profile at 41+5 to calm my nerves. Next pregnancy I'm hoping to only have one ultrasound.

My midwife used the doppler until she could hear dd with the fetoscope. I had a low anterior placenta so my midwife could always find her with the fetoscope but DH and I could never hear it. She would pull the doppler out for us at every appointment.
