Finding a midwife where I live is HARD, but I found one today that is willing to deliver and I liked her after talking to her on the phone. The only problem is that she is 2.5 hours away. She said with my history of longer labors, that she feels comfortable with the drive. Would you? Is that too far?
The only other problem is finding a place to do prenatal visits. She is willing to meet me halfway, but I don't know anyone in the towns she mentioned, so there isn't anywhere to do the actual check-ups. She said that if all else fails, she knows some Amish in some of the towns that would be willing to let us use their homes. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I don't really know that I have other options besides driving 2.5 hours.
Anyone have any advice? Should I keep looking?
