I'm sorry the pill didn't work for you. From uptodate.com:   " Progestin only pills are as effective as combination pills when taken at the same time every day, but there is a slightly higher failure rate of the mini pill if the woman is more than three hours late in taking it. A back up method of birth control should be used for seven days if a pill is forgotten or taken more than three hours late."   "Although the failure rate is 0.1 percent when pills are taken...
I would recommend talking to your midwife about it.
The 20 week ultrasound is way too early to get worried/worked up about a partial previa. It's very likely that the placenta is going to move up and out of the way.
I have managed to get through it without prescription medication, but it took effort, making lifestyle changes, nutritional improvement, herbs, etc.   What state/area are you in?

" (3) require midwives to document attempts to ascertain the lie of the baby before labor"   I don't know a midwife who doesn't do this.

That's great!
 No, but she does essentially call for banning CPMs, which given the lack of CNMs and CMs doing home birth in most states, would effectively get rid of home birth options for mothers in many areas.
www.oregonmidwiferycouncil.org has midwife listings.

There's not really a protocol for doing a Hibiclens douche before the GBS test.   You can find more info about GBS testing and infection here:   http://www.aafp.org/afp/2011/0501/p1106.html   http://evidencebasedbirth.com/groupbstrep/   I highly recommend the second article.
