Just to answer your question about not wanting to go down a list...we interviewed two midwives and I just said "I don't want to overwhlem you with questions, so do you just want to talk or ask us questions?" and one did, and the other preferred just answering questions- and MANY times two or three were answered when she was answering one...so it was fine.

One question I found very telling that wasn't in the above posts is "What do you require of your clients?".

I found some were telling me I had to have a certain type of pool, # of ultrasounds, certain childbirth class, certain pre-natal tests, etc. These were all HB MWs that has very similar answers to the questions on this thread. Really helped me figure out who would listen to what I wanted and who wanted to push their beliefs on me.

How many of you did a phone screen first vs just an inital interview. We'd have to pay each midwife we interview an 'interview fee' each being over $100. So I'm thinking it might be a good idea to screen some on the phone first. But on the other hand I'm having a hard time determining which questions to ask on the phone and which ones I'd like DH to be hearing the answer at the same time YKWIM? Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? What did you ladies do?
