The midwife clinic just called and I'm booked for my first appointment! Yay!
Turns out...they OPENED A NEW LOCATION! Like 5 minutes from my house! That's why they've been so busy organizing and trying to work things out. They only just opened the office and are in the process of staffing it, so things are a little chaotic.
Yay! This is even better because the other clinic was a good 25 min drive from me and I wouldn't have been able to get to any appointments unless DH came with me as he uses the car for work and there is no bus to the other location. The new location is a quick bus ride almost door to door from my house to the clinic (no transfers, just one bus straight across!)
Things are working out for the better!
