  • Re: RN seeking experience in birth center/home birth setting

    I have spoken to the midwife and the problem is that she is the only person in the area doing home/natural births. I also need a paycheck :( I think the doula idea is a great one, though, but a few people I talked to said that since i'm an RN to not worry about getting certified as a doula. My best...

  • Working alone at births

    Hi everyone! I'm just starting out as an independent midwife in the UK where we usually have 2 midwives provided for homebirths in the nataional health service.

  • Is home birth still an option for me?

    Hi, I am new to this site. If I have posted in the incorrect forum, please let me know. I am expecting my first child in October.

  • Re: LLL against homebirth?

  • Re: Midwives in IL

    I have BCBS, it's a PPO through my employer. I've been trying to figure out if going to a hospital is worth my time, b/c I'm a little aprehensive of the stigma attached to them. If I did go to a hospital, I'd want a midwife and doula, no drugs, no intervention unless absolutely nessecary...
  • Midwives in IL

    Can anyone explain to me the legal status of midwives in IL, and why the Direct entry Midwives are not certified by the state of IL? I also found on my insurance policy that home births are not covered, but practicing midwives in an approved facility are. How do I go about talking to my insurance company...
