I delivered at UCMC in 2009. Not sure if all of the midwives are the same, there was one that I didn't get along with at all (same one that MegBoz mentioned as being difficult, but nurturing during the birth). I only saw Metta once, but she seemed okay. I saw Lyn and Karen a bunch of times and was okay with both of them, but not a perfect fit - but I loved Kelley. I only got to see her once and I did everything I could to arrange a second visit with her during my last month, but Jasmine flat out told me that Kelley wouldn't be delivering again until after my due date, so there was no point. Well, baby came late, and I got lucky! Kelley delivered and things went as well as I could have hoped for. I did ask for the tub room, but by the time they got me in there I was already 9cm, so they wouldn't let me labor in the tub, that was a disappointment. But they agreed not to force me to have an IV or hep lock, which was a major issue for me, and they did not give me a hard time about refusing the eye goop or vitamin K shot, and vax (although Jasmine out and out accused me of being a bad parent for not wanting the Vitamin K shot). I don't remember enough details now, but everyone was pretty supportive of my choices and when baby's temp was too low, they allowed DH to hold her kangaroo style under the lights instead of taking her away from us and wrapping her up (it worked like a charm). After a very intervention-heavy induction with my first and a better second birth (marred by the IV - long story) at other hospitals, I was very pleased with this birth. It still wasn't the home water birth of my dreams but I have no real regrets either. I'm so grateful that Kelley was on call that weekend, she was (still is, I'm sure) fabulous, maybe you will get lucky like I did and get her. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
