I had another antenatal appointment last night & was given a different midwife to my usual.. I found it so frustrating, not only was there a trainee in there, who the midwife spoke to more then myself which I found quite off putting, But she was very blunt in comparison to my usual – particularly about my frame – Being sure to mention I was very small (even though I started out at 53kgs, and am now 67 at 31 weeks).
It completely put me off & left me feeling quit nervous as to whether I had anything to worry about.. I couldn’t even manage any question.. I wonder why some women work in such a job if they can’t manage to be more polite..

  • nice to read stories on this great site


  • Midwives often vary in approach and manner.


  • Lol I think I definitely let it get to me a little more then I should have.. More so the way she looked and tone she used when I said I didn’t have any questions.. (Oh well – Maybe next time then! she responded.) hahaha if I wasn’t so put off with her attitude I’d have felt more comfortable in asking.. But I figured I’d wait the 2 weeks until my next apt & speak to my usual midwife again (hopefully she is back!)


  • Oh unfortunately they are all different, I remember in hospital with my daughter, one told me one thing, and on the next shift another one came in and told me the opposite, I was so confused. I think just take in the positives and what you think is best for you. I put on 30kg with my daughter and we are both healthy and fine! Good Luck
