I'm not too worried about my midwife making it, but I don't want to hesitate to call her either. I waited 3 hours to call the birth center last time to be sure I was in labor, and my labor was only 6 hours. Not super fast, but she was posterior and my labor stalled at one point, so I'm not sure if it would have been shorter if she had been in the right position. I've heard with home births a woman's labor might go faster because she feels comfortable and relaxed. I'm hoping for 3-4 hours, so it's fast but not too fast.
