If you are pregnant and aren't sure on who you want your provider and doctor to be, I highly recommend the Group Health Midwives on Capitol Hill. I first started out with a doctor, and felt like I didn't have enough time to sit down with them and ask them all the questions that I had as it was my first time being pregnant. After switching to the midwives, I was relieved. There are 5 rotating midwives and you get to meet all 5 of them at different appointments so that when you give birth, you will be familiar with the one who will deliver your baby. They were all so nice and friendly, and when we sat down to talk about my pregnancy, I had all the time in the world to ask as many questions that I wanted and talk freely about anything. They really went into depth about everything that I needed to know. When the time came and I had my contractions, they were really good at letting me choose whatever position I wanted to be in,(which the doctor's don't really let you do) and helped me with breathing techniques and positions that might make things more comfortable and smoother. What I like about midwives vs. doctors is that they don't believe in medical intervention. There is no such thing as a baby being too big and needing a c-section in their book, therefore they will not force you to do anything that you don't want to do as long as the baby isn't in critical danger. Try them out, they are excellent.
