Has anyone done this? I've UP'd and still plan on UC'ing but wouldn't mind checking in with a midwife once before the birth.  How do you find a supportive midwife, especially so late (I'm due very soon!)

My best friend just had her first baby unassisted and she did this.  I'm glad she did because the midwife helped her get a birth cert.  She was really cool about her having a UC.  She even saw her for a postpartum and when I called with questions after the birth she was very helpful. 

I recommend talking to friends and finding out who all the midwives are and calling them.  Tell them about your plans for an UC and ask how they feel about it. 

I had my first UC without doing this.
