Re: Interviewing a midwife
Is the midwife in an OB's office? If so, ask the same questions you would ask of the OB. What are you hoping to get out of this pregnancy? Other than a healthy baby of course. Are you looking for a natural birth? No induction? More hands off? Continuous monitoring vs intermittent monitoring? I think answering these types of questions need to be answered first, then they will drive your questions for the midwife.
I wanted a natural birth with no US or any talk of inductions, intermittent monitoring, moving around during labor, birth ball, etc. I was able to achieve that even with a breech baby. Anywhere else, I would have had a c-section. I was happy with my result.
