Re: anyone else switch to a midwife at the end of pregnancy

I've had a midwife delivery with my last 2 and plan on having one with this one. But, they have been at the birthing center of the local hospital- not at home. There are 2 different types of midwives- certified nurse midwives (CNM)(which is probably what your OB has working with him) and lay midwives. CNM's are usually prohibited by their nurse practice acts from doing at home births- but it never hurts to ask.
