i dont have any kids yet and i dont have any plans to have children for atleast 5 years but i got talking with my mother and my pregnant friend about midwives. with my friends first birth there was a trainee midwife who was 23 and didnt have kids and didnt like kids very much, my friend thought she was patronising and asked for her to leave. which i dont think is unreasonable. my mother believes that the best midwives are older and have kids themselves, this means they can relate to your situation better. i wondered what some of the TPF mommys views were on this, would you rather have a midwife who was a mother herself? or do you think it doesnt make any difference?
