I don't know much about this yet but the HB MW I have been talking to says she has delivered over 800 babies at home with a roughly 10% transport rate...

Is this good or bad?

Mine said she had a 15% transportation rate. To a certain degree I personnally wish she was not concerned with rates at all, I would not want my MW to hesitate to transport if iit was appropriate--the last thing I would want her to be concerned about is her rate.

I think 10% is about normal. You might ask what percent is for medical reasons vs those who transfer for pain relief

I think 10% is about normal. My midwives have the same rate, with 1/2 being true emergencies and the other half being moms that change their mind, have a long labor or medical conditions that risk them out of homebirth in the last few weeks of pregnancy.

I definately have a million questions I wanna ask her and she just gave me a brief intro she had 4 of her kids at home and delivered her grandchildten at home...

So far I am liking her but I will be back here with a ton of questions too.. she also prefers the hospital I delivered my daughter at and says she has a good rapport with staff there so I'm getting pretty geeked...

The midwife I had a preconception visit with said her transport rate about 10%. Of which 3-4% were because of emergencies. 1-2% are because long-term failure to progress (water broken over 48 hours and no dilation in more than 12 hours and dilation is less than 6 cm's) the rest being because the mom wanted to have pain meds.

All the midwives I interviewed had transport rates about 10% and c/s rates of 3-5%.

It sounds like a good rate to me. If you are concerned with the rates then you could ask why women are transferring. My MW had a low transfer rate, and even lower c-section rate.

I've read that 10% is pretty standard -and usually for pain meds.
