DD Claire is 10 weeks old today. Had my last visit with my midwife 3 weeks ago. I feel like a psychopath but I really miss her! She was such a huge part of our lives for almost a year and I miss our appointments. Has anyone else felt this way after their baby was born?

I know I don't post here much anymore, but I could have written this post myself, and I felt SO silly for feeling the way I did.

I LOVED my OB. She was fabulous and I was seeing her multiple times a week towards the end of my pregnancy, due to my complications.

I saw her a couple times after the birth and then to get my IUD in. I was actually excited when she told me she wanted me to come in 2 months after my IUD was put in to make sure all was well with it... lol

I do miss her a lot though and I really hope she's not on mat-leave when I decided to have my second baby!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

I totally missed seeing my midwives after I finished up with them at my 6 week appointment. I have them on FB, and I am pretty close with the one who did Kennedy's birth, so I still talked to her, and saw them all at the birth center every couple weeks when they had mom's group there. And then I got pregnant again. LOL

*Thank you kiliki for the siggy!*

I definitely miss my team of midwives! The whole experience was amazing and I'm kind of sad that it'll be awhile before we're doing it again. I'm actually ready for labor again because I feel like I could do a better job this next time. I wish I knew to stay home longer but my contractions were so close and intense I went in. I guess I'm just ready for a do over all together lol.

Um, no. I was 38w and in the process of finding a new Dr. when I went into labor. And my OB was just so unencouraging. My birth was successful thanks to me and my doula really. But I could understand why you would feel that way. You shared something really special with a special person.

Hunter will be 3 years old on the 29th and I STILL miss the midwives who caught him!! I wish we lived close enough I could stop in from time to time and say hello but I can't!

DH and I drove past her neighborhood the other day and I got a little sad thinking of all the times we drove there for our appointments lol. I'm friends with her on facebook so we aren't entirely out of touch so that's nice.

I've had the same midwife for 16 years and going on 11th births now. She is a HUGE part of our lives and I know when my childbearing years are done, we will still be in close touch. My daughter is actually hoping to apprentice with her in three years and they have been discussing a plan for this. She's become more than a midwife and very much a close friend.
