Midwives or sage-femmes seem to play a bigger role in the childbirth in Switzerland than in the US. Many people here use a midwife and I think one will deliver the baby if Emily's doctor can't make it to the hospital on time. The midwife association has a website with what I assume is good information, but I haven't struggled through it yet.

  1. Midwives are the way to go! I had one with Lucas, and a Doula too, and I was so glad I did. Even though my monstrous boy had to be delivered via c-section in the end, having the midwife there during the entire hospital labor was really nice, as opposed to the doctor coming in at the last minute to catch the baby!
