I am definately wanting to go the Midwife route with pregnancy (in early stages of "we'll think about getting pregnant, but will actively try not to"). I am a nurse practitioner (peds only thankyouverymuch) and try every way I can to see NP's for my health care (support your sister/brother
). I know the obvious questions and things I need to look for when trying to find that perfect fit and am asking the nursery/ L&D nurses at the hospital where I do rounds for their recommendations. What are the little things I should pay attention to? What are some warning signs (not obvious) of a questionable/bad midwife? I am definately all for the vaginal birth and definately all for pain meds if it isn't going to be quick, so I know to see if the midwife is OK with that. I'm also not a person who needs a lot of face time with my provider either, I'm happy to get it, do what is needed, and let me leave.
Thanks for any help in advance!
