There are a decent number of midwives in the Albany area. But there have also been a string of poor outcomes associated with midwives in this area. There is a brinksmanship and a high degree of comfort with very risky OOH scenarios (footling breech, multiples) among the midwifery community. I would just want to be very careful to make sure that you are certain that your midwife has the same comfort level with risk that you do. Their general risk tolerance exceeds that of the mainstream home birth community.

Ok, thank you for that... gosh, finding a balance these days (or at least in this area) is tough... I appreciate the heads up!
