Couple Questions about Arizona

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My husband and I may be moving to Safford, Arizona, and I was hoping you ladies could help me.

First, is homebirth legal? Anyone know of any midwives in the Safford area? What about OBs there?

Second, what about vax laws? We're in Texas now, and we can get exemptions for pretty much anything. So, I was wondering how it is there because we are not vaxing anymore.

I found the BFing laws, but they also don't seem as thorough as Texas's. And Texas's laws are very thorough, IMO.

Anyone know any of this? Thanks! I appreciate any thoughts you can give me!

Homebirth is legal. Don't know if there's a midwife in Safford. Vax exemptions are a signature. Breastfeeding is legal anywhere in public that the mother is legally allowed to be.

There isn't one in Safford....wow that's such a random area to move to lol. Is it because of the mine? Not that it's my business, but just curious since there isn't much draw to that area except the mine.

Basically your options of homebirth Billye Matthews in Benson, (she's the closest), Diane Gregg in Bisbee, or Stephanie Fritz in Sierra Vista. For OB's.....no clue truthfully. Everything else I echo what Mybabysmama said.

No, we wouldn't be moving because of the mine. My husband is in management at Walmart, and he is being recruited for that market/store.

Duh, forgot about Wal-Mart! Sorry about that. It's a nice little town but kind of a long drive to anything beyond basic necessities. I have a friend who lives in Clifton right outside of Safford.....very sleepy there.

Thanks for all the help ladies! I contacted Billye Matthews, and she was so super nice! I came off the phone feeling very good with our conversation.
