Yes, many hospitals work with midwifery groups that have privileges at their facility. This would allow you to have an epidural and deliver in a hospital but have a midwife for your practitioner. It depends on where you are in the country. I'm from a less-than-midwife-friendly (but large) city and to my knowledge there are only two hospitals here that give midwives privileges. Hope this helps!
