I'd like to pick my midwife soon and have it narrowed down to two. What would you do?
Has lots more experience (been around since 1997)
Has more flexible appointments
Its just her and her assistant at the labor (2 people) so I'd still want to hire a doula
Younger and so I get along with her better
Maya abdominal massage at every visit
Brings 2 other people to the labor (no need for doula)
will encapsulate placenta for me
$500 less than Midwife A
Less experience (attended 200 births, 40 of which were personally delivered by her).
Appointments only on Mondays
What would you do? The biggest con here for me is the "lack of experience" in midwife b, but I don't know. At how many births are you considered experienced?
Any input would be most helpful for me!! Looking to make a decision soon =).
