In brief: Best judgement
Your midwife will use their best judgement.
If it's something that they can handle safely, based on their experience and qualifications, then they will do so. If it's over their head (again, in terms of experience and qualifications), then they will get you to the hospital to protect both you and your baby. Best care -use midwives practicing in the hospital birthing center.
