I used CNMs that had a practice located in a hospital. The midwife on call only showed up for the pushing, and in fact they tried to keep me from pushing until she got there. Luckily I didn't have to wait too long. She was the one I knew the least but she was really nice. I pushed for 3 hours with horrible back labor and she never once tried to rush things or intervene.

I hope you can find what you really want in a care provider. I applaud you for being proactive.
