Midwife in my area...

DH and I are TTC#3. I currently see the same OB/GYN I have been for the last 9 years, however, after getting a "highly suggested" epidural during the last delivery and not having much memory of it, I want to do a home birth with a midwife. DH agrees. We have talked numerous times, but idk anyone personally who has done this. I also do not know where to look for a midwife, considering I have only used my OB. 

Any fond memories, or advice will be appreciated.


Thanks gals!

Well, what i did was call my birthinf instructer for recommendations, and i also had friends who had homebirths. You can also do a googld search.

Do a google search for your state's midwifery coalition/organization. If there isn't a midwife in your immediate area, you might be able to find one by contacting one of the other midwives in your state.

A local La Leche League group, homeschool coop, natural foods coop, etc. might be places to ask too.

Also do a google search for doulas or childbirth educators in your area and ask for recommendations.

Even if you've not had a c-section, you could contact your local ICAN (international c-section awareness network), as they are a great resource of non-mainstream providers...

In addition to a midwife, I also suggest you look into having a doula present at your birth.
