In certified nurse-midwives and just midwives?   I had my first two children with regular ob's and I am considering a midwife this time but I am unsure if I want to go with the Greenville hospitals Midwifery program or a free standing birthing center.

nurse midwives are trained first as nurses and second as midwives (BS in nursing and MS in midwifery) whereas certified professional midwives are direct entry. The differences totally depend on the midwife, some people like to say nurse midwives are more medically oriented but it really just depends on the midwife :) Your best bet is to interview potential midwives to decide if they would work for you.

Personally, I prefer birth centers over hospitals, but that's me.

 

Birth centers are for people who are comfortable with out of hospital birth. This website has information for parents who are considering a birth center:
