Thank you ladies for all your responses! I ended up finding a midwife with a lower rate. Somehow I felt that the higher rate meant that they didn't help put you in the mindset that you can really do this! The lady I choose seemed much more confidant about natural unmedicated birth as well as lots of experience with different birth presentations if that so happens.
I did interview another lady today too that also said that the transfer rate was mostly for pain meds but also because a lot of women over 40 are being attracted to home birth now making statistics a little different for their cases.
