Anyone else using a midwife?

I used midwives for my past 2 babies, and had home births both times very successfully. We have moved since then though, and are now 40 min away from a hospital, so I don't feel comfortable having another home birth. I am going to use midwives again this time, but have a hospital birth AND get an epi. I have done it natural twice, I don't want to feel pain this time if I don't have to!

I'm seeing a midwife. It's an OB/midwife practice. You can choose which you prefer to see, as long as you are (and remain) low risk- if you're high risk, you get the OB.

I go to a midwife but they deliver at the local hospital. They are really awesome and are supportive of natural childbirth. They let you labor in the tub and are a huge advocate for you.

I am and do excited! I had an awful birthing experience with my practice last time that ended in a C-section. I'm very excited to have found this all midwives practice. They're completely different outlook on patient care is so refreshing.

I delivered in a hospital with midwives last time. I intend to have a home birth this Tim, but we will see, I may not qualify.

I'm going with my Certified Nurse Midwives, and will probably do the birthing center again.

I plan to use a midwife and I am debating myself about going to a birthing center again. I labored at a birthing center last time and pushed for a few hours but then had to be transfered to the hospital. Nothing scary, baby was sunnyside up and just not moving when I pushed. I love midwives.

I can't believe how many of you are using a midwife! That's awesome! I was expecting maybe 2 or 3 people!

I love seeing that so many of you guys are planning to have home births or natural births. I am planning on staying with my midwife and hoping for another natural hospital delivery.

I'm tossing it around. I had 2 epi hospital births and LOVED them. But I have an acquaintance who just opened a birthing center about 10 minutes away and it really has me curious. I just love the idea of my girls being able to be there for the appointments and just be able to go home/be home after the birth WITHOUT being woken up 7x a night just after I had a baby like in the hospital. IDK, we'll see
