Congratulations on choosing a midwife! Please answer the following questions to see if this matches your dream.
How do midwives differ from doctors?
Doctors traditionally have short prenatal visits with you and only turn up at your birth when you are ready to push the baby out. They also have the training to perform c-sections.
Midwives (CNM's) prenatal appointments generally last an hour and they ask about your well being. They stay with you during most of your labor and can do everything a doctors does. But, they can not do c-sections.
