In brief: THAT DEPENDS
On the training and your stituation and if the midwife delivers in the hospital and has the proper backup provided by a board certified obgyn who can respond quickly in an emergency situation.
I have worked with some very good midwives and shortly with some bad ones. My patients go to me because I do all of my own deliveries and they know that I am trained to take care of a problem.
