It often CAN be harder to have a natural birth in a hospital setting or to find an allopathic doctor who will support it fully.
That doesn't mean all doctors are awful and all midwives are fantastic. It just means that, in general, it's easier to find a naturally minded midwife than it is to find a naturally minded doctor. They typically have very different birth models and care principles. Some people only have access to a handful of doctors either because of area or insurance or both. Of course it isn't impossible, but it's misleading to imply it's universally easy to find an allopathic doctor who will truly support natural birth.
