I would drop that MW very fast. Several things you have said she has said have raised red flags and that one is just so way over the line. She's basically telling you it's a good thing you are having a hospital birth because you are going to need drugs. What a horrible, terrible midwife to say something like that!

(FWIW, the midwife I had with Cameron strongly recommended perineal massage and it was so uncomfortable and I found his birth to be easier to endure. The midwife I have now - had her with Fritz, too - doesn't recommend it. I appreciated that "permission" to not do it!)
