Hi-I am looking for a little information. I am about 7 months pregnant; I want a midwife to deliver my baby but have heard rumors that the midwifes in the East Bay do not or are not allowed to actually deliver the baby at the hospitals, that a doctor on call will come in to the room to do the delivery. Does anyone know any truth to this? It absolutely makes zero sense to me. 
Can anyone recommend a midwife that delivers in the hospitals that is good? 

Can anyone recommend a OBGYN that is all about natural delivery in this area? 


If I cant find a midwife then I will go with a doctor. I am just running out of time- I guess some places don't take you if you are past a certain amount of time in gestation... 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have never given birth in the E. Bay, but you might want to check out the Berkeley Parents Network.  They have a ton of information and contacts that might be useful and informative.
