I'm from Canada, this is important because my experience will not be the same as someone in the US.
In Canada, midwife care is covered by our health care system (yay!). Unfortunately, we have a HUGE shortage of midwives. In a stroke of luck I was successful in getting two separate appointments with two different midwife collectives. Which means I can choose between them.
Catch is that the first appointment is with Midwife A on August 21 and I will only have up to 3 days to decide yes or no on Midwife A. If I decide no, I can keep my appointment with Midwife B on September 5, but then I would have to go with Midwife B as I would have given up my spot with Midwife A.
I'm looking for tips on what questions you would ask and what you would think about when choosing to go with a midwife. Keep in mind that I will NOT be able to do a comparison because the appointments are too far apart.
What I know so far is that Midwife A is very slightly closer to where I live, but more accessible by transit.
Both Midwives practice out of the same hospital, so there is no difference there.
Midwife A has a better website (I'm in communications, I notice these things - I'm sure it really has no telling on their ability as a midwife).
So what actual questions should I be thinking about?
