I definately prefer midwives. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about midwives.
The TRUTHS are:
-Midwives are equipped and trained to handle emergencies.
-CNMs can deliver in hospitals, birthing centers, and homes.
-Midwives typically have BETTER outcomes than doctors in normal risk women
-Unlike most doctors midwives can safely handle breech delivers without surgery
There are SO many benefits of having a midwife over a doctor. I would never choose a doctor if I had the option of a midwife.
