I think that perhaps first you should ask mothers you know in your area about midwifery and if any of them used any. You can also look some up and ask for references, that way you can read or talk to previous parents who have used those services. I didn't use a midwife my first go round, nor am I using one this time. It's just a personal choice, not saying anything, but I only mention it because my suggestions may not be as knowledgeable as others'. I say go on the internet and do some research on places close by your home or relatively close to a hospital in case, God forbid, you need to get to one.
