I'm hoping to find a midwife in training to assist in my delivery. reasons being i'm hoping it will lower the cost on my end and help someone get some experience. I'm due middle of May 2011.

I do not know of any apprentice midwives that aren't working alongside licensed midwives (therefore not reducing your costs), but I do know that Birth Works has several student doulas who are cheaper than an official doula (not free anymore, but I think the cost is around $250 or so for a student while a full cost doula is $600+). I, too, am a student doula (will be officially certified by February), but I am not a part of Birth Works.

Yes, Birth Works offers midwifery and doula services...as far as lowering costs, you'd want to see about midwifery, as doulas are only for labor support (in home or hospital births). I'm a Birth Works doula, and what the other poster said is pretty accurate. You can call BW for a free consultation and they can give you all the info you need. :)
