I used a midwife with DS#2 and it was AH-MAZING! I think because with DS#1 I had an old crotchety doctor who could barely remember my name (I really don't think he did, ever) and my birth experience was horrific (yeah, he broke my tailbone with the forceps).
So with #2 I went to the midwife because above all else I didn't want to break my tailbone again. I wasn't into natural/drug-free childbirth for the holisitc aspect, more so that I could move around and push in different positions to not break my tailbone.
Ended up that I adore my midwife. She was (and is) so amazing. She was texting with me the whole time i was in labor, she met me at the hospital and was in my room thoe whole time. The birthing experience was so fast and easy (painful, but easy). But 2 hours of pain is way easier then not being able to sit down with a newborn for 3 months.
If you have a normal/low-risk pregnancy, i would 100% recommend a mid-wife. My opinion is at the end of the day, the nurses are the ones that do 99% of the work during your labor and delivery, so if you have an extra educated nurse there that knows you already, it's a win-win.
Good luck!!! I hope it works out!!
