I found those midwives I met to be more like hospital nurses (well, I don't know well enough to say this, but I am guessing), they are not so personal . I was reading the old threads on birth/midwifery in NL and agree with some mamas who shared a similar perspective. Since homebirth/midwives are considered normal, I too am finding that midwives are not very personal and not so much politically committed but more technically oriented. Well, my view is so limited, but after I met the second midwife yesterday, I strongly feel that way now.
Also, I cannot work with a specific midwife here. I need to get familiar with 5 or so different midwives since nobody knows who is going to be available when I go into labor.
