I know this probably isn't the *best* place to post but not sure where else to post.

I had a hospital birth w/ DD and hated the experience. Well, we got a BFP this week, and a new birth center opened up so we can have our "out of the hospital" birth experience! I'm psyched, because a home birth would never fly for DH. Anyways, we are going for a tour and consultation tomorrow (Sunday) with one of the midwives. I'm curious what questions should we ask? How will this pregnancy and birth experience vary from that of a traditional OB/GYN and hospital route? I had an ultrasound *ALL*THE*TIME* with DD bc they couldn't detect her HB via doopler. For the most part, I'm excited to have the freedom of choice I didn't have and the support from a midwife. Also, not to have to rotate around to meet all the doctors, and never really develop a relationship with any care provider and really my OB w/ DD could have cared less my desires for birth. I don't think he ever asked me what I wanted or anything like that. IDK. So what kinda questions should I ask? What should I expect?

I'd start off with talking about your previous birth experience, what you liked, what you didn't, etc. I'd also talk to them about your medical history and ask them about their procedures. I don't think you necessarily need a list of questions to take with you, but rather just have a conversation about what you are looking for, and what they can provide.
