Why do so many people choose to go to a midwife?

I'm just curious. Here, in this area of Ohio, it's almost unheard of to not go to an ob and deliver in a hospital. I've heard so many women on this board though say that they see a midwife so I was just wondering what the pros/cons are to a midwife vs. an ob-gyn? And with a midwife, do you deliver in a hospital or out in someone's bedroom somewhere? I don't mean to sound ignorant, I just don't know.
