We have a great group of midwives in our area. I chose the midwifery group here because I'd see every one of them (a group of 8) throughout my pregnancy either at a prenatal appointment or at the open house they host four times a year. This made me feel very comfortable with who would be delivering our babies.
For the site, I'd have a tip to be sure to call your insurance carrier and ask if they cover prenatal visits and delivery via a midwife. I think most will as long as there's access to a physician if necessary at the birth. I think its also important to note that midwives support the birth plan of the mother and father, whether they choose drugs or not.
