I read your other post, just based on your description of the OB's you experienced it sounds like culpeper hospital. If it is not I am frightened that there is another that sounds just like it...
I am a homebirther but have had several friends go to martha jefferson for natural birth with a nurse-midwife and they were all very
happy with their experiences. Two were "high risk" and went to Dr.Tiaraja (sp?) One found him bossy and impatient and the other loved him, I think it is a matter of how high risk you are. My regular low risk natural birthing mamas had great experiences with both midwives and the nurses- I know a few of the L&D nurses and they are a lovely bunch.
Everyone I know who went to UVA ended up with a C-section against their original intent, one refused to pay after reading her records and found that it wasn't necessary.
Hope this helps. If you want to interview someone who has immediate experience with certain midwives at martha j I can probably get one of my gals to talk with you. PM me if you want.
