I moved and have to find a new midwife which is stressful. I loved my old one.
Anyways, how many babies would you like a MW to have delivered to feel comfortable with her? Would 150 be enough?
Yes I mean a homebirth midwife. She is a CPM. 9 years as labor assistant and doula, and then 9 years as Midwife and Doula Assisted Births (Home, Birth Center,and Hospital). She only accepts certain number of births per month which is her reason that her births are low. I am assuming the 150 number is where she actually delivered them. I am going to ask how many she attended or has been student midwife at.
I agree with dogmom. I don't even ask how many they've caught. I know the CPM standard has a requirement for number of births attended. Beyond that my main concern is personality and that we're on the same page as far as needs.
My son was #39 for the CPM who caught my son. She did a wonderful job! If you click with the MW and trust her and her judgements, I don't think it matters if she's done 150 or 1,500...
