No, I wouldn't want a midwife who had never experienced pregnancy and birth herself either. I only want a woman who has "been there, done that" as my midwife. There are so many things about birth that you learn only by experiencing it yourself. It just feels so natural to me in the tradition of "granny midwives" to call a woman who is older and has given birth herself to be by my side. The midwives who attended the homebirths of both my sons were mothers themselves and...
We were not married at the time we had our children, so I gave them their father's last name mostly so no one would question if they had the same father or who their father was.

Timidly joining....not sure what category I fit in....we're just "letting go" (of birth control and control in general) and seeing what happens.... Hello everyone! and babydust to all! 
Yoga, Pilates, and Kegels are all you really need. And don't let your dr. or midwife give you an episiotomy! I get comments all the time about how toned my arms and legs are and all I do is walk on the treadmill or outside and go to a one-hour exercise class 3 times a week at my local gym (which offers free childcare for up to 2 hours per day which means I get time for a nice shower after my workout as well). The exercise class I go to combines yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi....
