My spouse and I are TTC, so I'm not yet pregnant, but I'm already dead set on having a midwife instead of an OB guide me through my pregnancy and deliver my (future) baby. I'm talking to a friend who has already had a son and she keeps telling me that I shouldn't make this decision just yet, that I might change my mind, etc. Am I wrong to have decided what kind of health care provider I want before I'm even pregnant. In my mind it makes sense to have this sorted out now so that when I get pregnant I can go to the midwifery right away. I've done some research and in my opinion midwives are just like an OB only better because they empower the mother to be, guide, assist and actually invest time in her. I'm even considering a home birth, which they can do, because I'm not particularly fond of hospitals and it's all about being as comfortable as possible during labor, right? Are there other ladies out there who have already used a midwife, or have already decided to use one?
