Midwives are usually a lot more natural & more personal. I think midwives (depending on the individual) actually have more real experiences birthing children. They are by the woman's side the whole time & they are in no rush & they never pressure you. I liked the personal touch of a midwife. Mine was an older lady and had birthed literally thousands of babies. She started her midwife apprenticeship when she was only 16. She had been birthing babies for 60 years. She totally rocked. If i have another, I'm definitely having her as my midwife (if she has not retired yet). She knew more than any Dr. ever could explain to me. It felt like she was part of my family & she made the whole birthing experience so wonderful. I never could have experienced what i did with a Dr.
