Also, I'd recommend focusing your birthplan on healthy mom, healthy baby. If you aren't able to stay with the midwives, there's a reason. You and your baby need some of the medical interventions. Create a fantasy that includes those interventions and leaves everyone healthy. Afterall, the crunchiest birth doesn't mean squat if one of you has a few problems.
Find a way to be at peace with the path you are on and the birth you have. I don't mean just roll over to whatever the hospital wants, I mean just don't fight the parts you need.
One of the obs is a dr. reed. I've heard lots of good things about her. Discuss being delivered by an attending rather than a resident if that's important to you. Jim Macieulla (?sp) is one of the few obs in town who will deliver a breech baby vaginally.
