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

With my first pregnancy I went to the regular ob and when I delivered, he wasn't on call so that was weird. The ob that I went to before doesn't do ob anymore - just gynecology. So, after trying to figure out who I'd rather see in the practice I chose a midwife because rather than spend 10 mins per appt. they spend 20-25 mins. She answers all of my questions without slowly moving toward the door and really explains everything and asks me how I am feeling! I can't remember my ob ever asking my how I was feeling! I just think she's great. I'll also deliver in a hospital.
