My midwives did them regularly during the pregnancy, especially at the end to check for dilation, etc.
I don't see the point of having them at the end of pregnancy to check for dilation. It's just to satisfy curiosity and it tells you nothing. Whether you're at 4cm or closed up tight, you could have your baby that night or in two weeks.
If I'm showing signs of preterm labor, then I'd agree to cervix checks. But otherwise I am declining all internal exams until I'm feeling the urge to push.
