Where in Iowa are you at?  Sheryl Puderbaugh at Hearts and Hands in Des Moines may take medicaid and does HB.
Hello all, it's been ages since I have posted here. I have a client who is 31 weeks. I am sharing with permission to get some extended thoughts. Client is a 25 y/o primip 31 weeks. She has GD and MW is referring her to a perinatologist for consult due to low amniotic fluid levels (measured most recently at a 6.4 down from a 7.4) Mom is having a resurgence of emesis and nausea and ongoing braxton hicks. Yesterday, she felt they had developed into contractions which...
I focused on nutrition. I love the nutritioal content in the two twin books by Barabara Luke and Elizabeth Noble. I kept a journal and wrote all my thoughts out. I read and read and read and thought through all my options, potential road blocks ect. But at the end of the day i spent a lot of time meditating on the possitive. My focus was eating 140-170 grams of protien each day. It was the one thing I could control and so I did. When we decided to fly in a MW from...
Hillary Keiser is doing private homebirth now out of Oak Park - she's fabulous! www.gentlebirthcare.com
What kind of birth do you want??
I would LOVE to come meet you! But I live in Illinois (land of crappy midwifery laws). This is my sister-in-law's sister. I hope she calls Thank you for all the resources for her. She has no children, has some well woman's issues, and is trying to concieve. She's very shy but wants a peaceful birth - so hopefully this will be a doorway to other ways - since her only experiences have been with traditional Amercian gynecology. (ugh) Thank you again - I...
The sister of my future sister-in-law needs to work with someone on well womans care. She is having some concerns. I would love to see her begin a pathway to meeting midwives. But she wants someone in-network with her insurance - so we can probably only consider CNMs. She is in Apple Valley CA in San Bernadino county. She has Anthem Blue Cross. I have found this : Inland Midwife Services 1200 Arizona St Suite A-5 Redlands , CA 92374 Phone: (909) 335-6241
I have a singleton and then twins 18 months apart - all girls. i take the double stroller and two mei tai's wherever I go. I also take a long piece of grow grain ribbon with three loops tied into it. It's sparkle purple - thier favorite color. If the want to walk they hold a spot on the ribbon. If they do not listen they go back in the stroller. They have been FABULOUS with this and everyone complies. I want to respect their desire to walk - but it gives them...
I've been asking myself this same question for the last 4 years, plotting and planning how to begin this calling which i feel so strong about. I live in a state where CPM's and DE's are not recognized and since they were the last state to recognize CNM's I have struggled with my decesion. I am a CPM at heart. I have also been blessed to have worked with CNM's, CPM's and DE's. I have seen multiple CNM's practicing with the midset and philosophy which I desire to...
Call your practitioner and make them aware of the experience. I had a TERRIFYING response to zoloft. I has hallucinating, have visual aura, no balance, crawled around on the floor b/c I couldn't distinguish between the floor and ceiling and was puking my mind out. All on the lowest dose.
