BNC has mid-morning 99, midmorning 7. On the other hand, we have midtown, midweek, midwinter, midsummer. midstream, midterm, and of course midwife which has nothing to do with it.

Okay, and what about the preposition? "In" or "at"?

(We also have midfield, midday and midnight...)

Is a "midwife" perhaps "a wife occupying a middle place or position"?
And if so... (just kidding!)

It's cognate with German mit + Weib, the woman who is with (the woman giving birth)
