We met the midwife last week. I'm extremely happy with the choice we've made. She immediately meshed with all of the ideas that were important to me. She doesn't like to induce labor unless it's absolutely necessary, doesn't usually do an episiotomy, and since we're planning on trying to do this "naturally she'll be there for a good portion of my labour. All in all I feel very comfortable with the choice. Karl liked her too which is also nice.
The only problem I do have is having to go to Deaconess. Further reinforced by Dad's trip to Deaconess Emergency Wednesday night. However I think I can handle it and if it really does become an issue and I need emergency care I'll just go to St. Mary's.
