My midwife had done around 150 births - many of them out of the country in a training setting - and had been practicing for only a few years. She was much younger and less experienced than the midwife I had imagined myself using. I interviewed midwives with much more experience behind them. But I knew my midwife was the one as soon as I talked to her. She was amazingly, wonderfully perfect for me. I almost wish I was having another baby so I could use her again!
