I think there are good and bad with all care providers! I feel really lucky that everything worked out for me like I wanted, I had a lot of anxiety about our experience, and I really feel like I got the best birth experience I could have had, even if it wasn't exactly the one I had planned!

There is nothing wrong in my opinion, with meeting several different care providers and choosing the best fit for yourself. Also consider hiring a doula. I didn't, because the student really filled that role, until it was time to deliver the baby (at which point there wasn't much anyone could have done for me) I would consider hiring one should I not have a MW attended birth, or possibly if there wasn't a student/extra set of hands to help out!
