I am having midwife care with the NHS - not a private midwife.
That means that even though my midwife is part of a group independent from the hospital, they ultimately must follow the general protocol and hospital rules if something goes wrong and I need be see there. That means, she does not try to override the doctors' decisions.
Besides, knowing that I want a homebirth, she maybe felt even less inclined to push for something else to be done. She did emphasize many times that I must again if something is wrong though - but as I said earlier, I don't know what that means now.
ETA - No, there is no other hospital.
You get the care from the hospital in your area.
You know what is funny? I used to be so relieved that here I did not have to go brought all the over the top precautions I went through in American hospitals. Now I am afrai that nobody is doing enough.
