Oh goodness, I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to have your baby in that hospital! We're situated right in between two, and yours sounds an awful lot like one of those. Needless to say, we went the *other* direction to have our first daughter. Wish I'd known more about and been comfortable with the idea of a home birth with her.

Sounds like you've got some good leads here - I really hope it all works out for you! I tend to be a very private person too, but my midwife is wonderful...I don't think I'll be uncomfortable at all with her attending our birth. The hospital experience was horrible, with all the random people in and least with a midwife, it's someone you already know and trust. And hopefully even like.

Best of luck to you - keep us posted on your search!
