I’ve had three babies and am working on a fourth. The first three were born at a freestanding midwife run birth center. God willin and the crick don’t rise this one will be born there too.
All my prenatal care was done at the same facility where I gave birth. Therefore my whole file was right there in the building. The midwives just took it out and it was there to be consulted for the whole of labor.
Now the more usual set up is that you get your prenatal care at the OB’s office, then go to the hospital to have the baby. How much of your prenatal records get to the hospital? When do they get there? How do they get there?
