Okay, I haven't been in L&D since nursing school
, so please excuse my silly questions. I read that midwives won't follow high risk pregnancies. I am curious as to what constitutes high risk. Obviously something like DM or hx of pregnancy complications would be high risk. But would age 35+ be high risk & hx of autoimmune disorder (IBD in remission) be high risk? What happens if you see a midwife and then you later develop problems...do you get punted to the OB or does the midwife continue to follow you with the OB stepping in as needed for medical management? Thanks.
