Found a provider, CNM, I can imagine birthing with her. It's at a hospital, with a few other attending midwives, so could be the luck of the draw, not my fave, but as it is. Boyfriend is INCREDIBLY medical-minded and test- happy. I had previously only ever seen a midwife I'd grown up knowing, at my home...this is a vastly different experience. I'm open to compromise, and a CNM is that. So far, so good. Also had an ultrasound. Kinda cool. Just completely different experience than ever before. Now, to focus on finding a good childbirth class that will teach him why I chose the births I did and why I need certain things to be the same as before. He's pro co-sleeping, but also vaccines, which I haven't even told him my other kids have none of. He'll be abhorred at that, so I need info and support he can bond with. Lots of compromising. It's very hard for either of us to not do things the way we are convinced is best...
