I'm reading as much as I can to try and figure out how to KNOW if this midwife would respond well to an emergency, and the more I read the more I'm thinking I don't trust a homebirth this time around. Not with someone with 3 years experience... you know? There are so many things that don't come from an inner gift or from intuition and I just don't want to be someone with a problem thats not caught.

So I'm starting to think we will go to the birthing center here after all. They work really closely with an OB and have a lot of equipment and technology in their office, and of course many years of experience.

That's more of a rant than a response. But thank you for another thing to consider in this.
After I posted I was just thinking back and I can't think of anything specifically related to the rh issues that effected the birth . All of the concerns were related to the baby after the birth. But again most of that could be assessed with the antibody screen and blood type. I have had terrible hospital births so I wouldn't want to talk anyone out of a birthing center unless it was necessary.
