Wonderful Birth experience

I switched to a midwife group from a regular OB/GYN Dr's office after feeling like I was "asking too many questions and taking up the Doctor's time." A colleague suggested I try a midwife. I was very impressed in the time they took to answer any questions I had. I never felt rushed. When I became pregnant, a year later I was glad I made the switch. They were very thorough at every prenatal visit. When it came time to deliver my baby the midwife stayed by my side through out the labor, walking me through the process so i knew what to expect. I felt I had the most natural birth experience, with limited pain and no medication!!
