    Midwife, without a doubt.  I was cared for by my doctor until a hit 30 weeks, and he sent me off to the midwife clinic, where I cound out I could of be cared for from day 1.  They were so friendly, professional and really keyed into how women feel and think.  I felt far more supported and wished I had been there from the beginning.

    I’m definitely pro midwife! 🙂 Unless you are high risk, you don’t NEED an OB and midwives are going to treat your pregnancy as a natural, beautiful part of your life rather than simply looking to pathologize it.

    I think finding a provider you like is more important then choosing between the two. I have had the same family practice doctor forever. He sees all of my kids, husband, and myself. I like this because he has really gotten to know us well and I really trust him. He had a resident with for delivery, but that was really it. He closed his clinic for the morning while I was in labor and waited at the nurses station until I was ready to deliver, came in the room to check me himself-you can’t get better service then that.Finding a provider that you get a long with is really the most important thing.
