It depends how busy they are. Some midwives book up fast and will only take on so many women around the same due date. I don't actually see my midwife for prenatal care (I see my OB for that because my midwife is 3 hours away) - however, I do "book" her right away. She's semi-retired and only takes on one birth per month, so I have get in fast if I want to claim her for the month I am due!

You may not need to start your prenatal care just yet, but I would definitely start conversing with the midwives you are considering. Ask them if they have a set number of women per month that they are willing to take on, and how many have they committed to already for your birth month.
