Congratulations on choosing a midwife! Please answer the following questions to see if this matches your dream.

1. Do I have a serious chronic medical condition?

2. Do I want more flexibility in your birth plans?

3. Do I like the more routine, less personal approach?

4. Do I want to deliver in a hospital or birth center?

     If you answered no to question #1 and #3 above, then a midwife is a good match for you. If a midwife is not a good match for you, then visit our Doctor's page or Home Birth Midwives to see if that suits you dreams better.

How do midwives differ from doctors?

Doctors traditionally have short prenatal visits with you and only turn up at your birth when you are ready to push the baby out.  They also have the training to perform c-sections.

Midwives (CNM's) prenatal appointments generally last an hour and they ask about your well being. They stay with you during most of your labor and can do everything a doctors does. But, they can not do c-sections.
