All about bringing a new family member into the world

We were having our first child and I was attending a regular OBGYN when around our 20th week visit we decided to switch to a midwife. We felt the doctors were more about getting through patients and making money than being a part of bringing another life into the world. Our nurse-midwife is more like a friend than a doctor visit. She is all about bringing our child into the world the way we want not what will make the most money or what is easier/faster for her. I love having her for delivery and would recommend her or another nurse-midwife in a heartbeat. It is absolutely the best experience for bringing a child into the world! It's good to have an advocate for a birth you want in a world that believes in drugs and what seems like forcing the baby into the world before they are ready.
