Congrats on your BFP!!
I know 2 families that liked her and both used her for more than one birth. One family had their youngest child 5 years ago and mom is now a surrogate. They are going to use Mary again for their homebirth.
One family did not have great things to say. It was funny at the time. (I have a strange sense of humor) Our husbands were working together, we were talking about home birth. She said how their birth went and then I asked who her MW was and when she said Mary, I almost choked on my salad.
Mary has a ton of experience with birth and home birth. I wanted someone who could deal with an emergency (even though I believe that home birth is safer than hospital birth). I already had 2 children and I was confident that I could do this and it would not be a big deal.
I don't want to list all the little things that irritated me (I thought of more from my previous post). In general I am hard to please. I will admit it. Go with YOUR gut. If you are not sure now, you will not like her when you are in labor or 30 weeks pregnant and hormones are going crazy. Or maybe that is just me.
Feel free to PM me if you want more details.
