    I'd have rather either not see them at all or use the visits to discuss more of the birthing process, aftercare, bf'ing etc (I did classes before bub and they were crap!).

    At my 1st birth the midwife I had asked me what pain relief I wanted. I said I'll have an epi, but no gas or peth so don't ask me. First thing she did was ask me. Then when I was in pain she said 'do you want that epi now' and I said no I wanted to hold off abit. She said 'well why are you having a baby in a hospital if you don't want anything, only dogs give birth without drugs, your not a dog' WTF???? Dh still tells people that story. Anyway, her shift was over and I got a new midwife, first things she said was 'look, your in labour and I know it hurts so I don't want to hear you whinging about it ok' ....... Yep true effin story. Then before my c/s and a failed epi which I was in pain with they needed to take bloods, the midwife couldn't get blood, she kept jabbing the needle in me, then called the other midwife, and she was doing one arm, the other midwife was doing the other (while I'm fully dilated and screaming in pain) my ob walked in and yelled 'GET AWAY FROM HER' and they didn't end up taking any. Crazy bi!tches.

    My 2nd midwife at public (I wasn't really focusing because I was laready pushing at that stage) but she was about 50yrs old, Vietnamese and had about 30yrs experience. My doula and dh said she didn't talk much, but she knew what she was doing. I give her full credit for me not having any damage and she was open to everything like delayed cord clamping etc. And when I was tired and wanted to put dd down, she was like no no baby needs to be with you (skin to skin). I loved her, didn't talk much but thats all you need!

    The midwife at your second birth sounds lovely

    I had an awesome midwife (60ish I would guess, and very experienced) for my second birth too (vbac) she knew that I wanted a natural birth. So when the resident came in and said I should have a csec, she asked why. The answer? "because we want to go home".

    Her response was : p!ss off and come back when you have a proper reason.

    I hope you told the first lot to get effed!

    Your story about the second birth made me think and realise that most of the midwives I had post csec in hospital weren't so bad. Quite nice and helpful with bf'ing actually.

    So I hereby cancel my request for a midwife bashing session.

    You don't need an ob to have continuity of care.

    All my midwives post care both public and private were awesome. No I wish I told the 1st 2 to get effed, but I was scared and in pain, dh was useless and fainted during my epi and I just had no energy to care. That first midwife came to see me the 2nd day aswell, but she just had no idea and I look back and they really just wanted me in bed and to be quiet like I was bothering them?
    I didn't have anything in the room like a fitball, was never offered a shower or anything natural for pain relief. At the public hospital the birthing suites were amazing, big bath, equipment. People tell me the same private hospital had that stuff, but I never saw it and was never offered anything.

    As for Mia F, well I think she really does like to be provocative. I'm actually starting to wonder if that is her intention actually, given the handful of her articles I have read.

    She had a piece about food intolerances that left a really bad taste in my mouth (no pun intended haha)

    It's a shame really, given how influential she probably is.

    I think everyone will agree that there are good and bad eggs in every profession. What I get upset about is those generalist comments along the lines of "obstetricians are of no use, and want us all to have cesareans so they can go and play golf and drive their BMW".
