15 minutes on a non-traffic summer day and any time during winter if the roads were cleared. So pretty much about 10 miles. During busy summer days, probably 30-40 minutes. Mainly at one specific light when you hit the start of downtown. Her house is right there but the traffic lines that sit there during the lights are horrible!
My midwives were about 45 minutes to an hour away. My directions for labor was to call them when I started, then they'd hang out local to me until I needed them. My labor with Kate stretched on for days, they ended up spending the night one night, but labor stopped, so they went home.. When it started again 2 days later, they came by to check me, then went to go eat dinner... they came back to check on me after they ate, and then one planned on heading home, and the other midwife was going to spend the night...
but then labor picked up again and I was happy they were both there... Kate was born a couple hours later!
She lives a 30 minute drive away. Probably *could* make it in 20 if necessary. We aren't too concerned about not making it, I'm pretty okay with delivering without if we had to, plus the hospital is only 4 blocks away.

Mine is about 55 minutes away on a good day. We have major traffic problems here. So, as long as I don't go into labor during rush hour, it should be okay. One time I did go fast... 3 hours from water breaking to delivery. So, once it starts, she should get here and stay
On a non traffic time of day about 20 minutes...with a little traffic maybe 30. I am just going with the thought that she will make it. I think she told me she has missed one birth in her whole career of 28 years and it's because a lady went really early and she (midwife) was on vacation!
