    In general, for those who've had more than one baby, was your MW any different with you the second time round?

    I'm asking because I have mixed emotions about my MW, I think it's going to be the same as I had with Isaac, and she was so negative with me, might have to change her if she's the same second time round :think:

    I had a different one too!

    If your not happy though Amy you have every right to make a fuss and make sure you see a different one - thi woman has to make sure your baby is ok and touch you and be very personal, i wouldnt want someone i dislike doing all of that!

    My MW was a lot more relaxed with me on my 2nd and 3rd pregnancy. Unless your high risk I think you will find you will get seen a lot less this time. With Nathan I was pretty much left to get on with it and I only seen my MW 3 times in the whole pregnancy.

    I had Tia in the UK and I'm having this one in Spain... so I've had different docs/consultants/mw's the lot...

    The one running theme though that I have noticed... is that the minute they hear that this is your second child they back down a lot more... they don't tell you what to do as much or give you the "advice" that you were given before.
    And they are a lot more relaxed about things but will take you much more seriously when you have a problem.

    I think it's been much nicer this time round tbh... :)

    Thankyou for the replies :hug:

    I didn't care for much of what she said the first time around, and she didn't listen to me about my choices, I am not high risk either, high BMI but had a perfectly healthy pregnancy with Isaac. I found her appointments very frustrating, and I felt unable to challenge a lot of it having not had a child, even though I still challenged :lol:

    I don't know if our surgery has another MW so the idea of changing may be a bit of a nightmare, so I'm hoping I don't have to. Ah well, I'm prepared to see how it goes :)

    I have a different mw this time and she is lovely, my last one was as well but I am changing again soon because I will be changing doctor's when we move which I am gutted about. They are very relaxed about my pregnancy this time though. I am having consultant led care as I had a c section but I don't see mw very much and only see the consultant twice! My mw is very for me having a natural this time though which made me feel a lot better! I hope your mw is either different or better with you this time hun, some can be a pain but most are lovely!

    Wow do you have the same midwife that you had first time round? I should be so lucky.

    I have a different one this time and she is evil, the one i had first time round was so lovely.
