Our last homebirth I reallt liked my midwife's view on birth. She was really relaxed and believed in a womans ability to birth. For the actual birth she brought an assistant that was getting hwr midwifery license in this state and had it in another country. She was very knowledgable but way too hands on for us and she ended up pretty much taking over the birth. Now Dh already said he didnt care for how she handled the borth (checked for dialation way too often) and i didnt either...plus communications was lacking. Other than that she was really a sweetheart...so I liked her as a person...just not a midwife. So our options are very limited due to income and debt that has to be payed off. i dont want to cause us to go in more debt and we were suppose to use our tax return to pay off more debt. So I think this midwife would be our safest option financially but neither of would choose her otherwise. So Im not sure if I should see what she could do....or if I should just hold off until I have checked out all the midwives and options. I know that hospital would be our very last resort.
