Holistic or Integrative Doctor & OB/Midwife in Temecula Area??
Hi there, I am new here and considering home birth and looking at midwives in my area. I found this post and am wondering about Ann Sommers. Do you remember
I ended up using Coley and had an amazing homebirth. I interviewed Andrea Meyer, Michelle Freund, one in Fallbrook I can't remember her name, Karen Pecora and Coley Douglass. I loved Andrea Meyer but didn't want the drive, and in the end it was a toss up between Coley and Karen Pecora. Both are very qualified and kind. Coley is very calm and when she said she handles well under pressure I was sold. It all depends what level of involvement you want. Coley is more hands off, and at appt's leaves it more up to you to bring things up. She has her questions she will ask to make sure everything is going well but doesn't tend to go into details about the development of the baby. She also came to me for all apts but not sure if she does that still. She's also expecting in March but knowing her she will be back at work shortly after. Hope this helps. Where in the area are you?
Thanks for the info! I have a meeting with Ann Sommers and will see how it goes, I have heard positive things about her from our Bradley Class instructor who used her. I live in Temecula and am considering home birth for our first baby. We have Kaiser HMO. I contacted Coley and she is on Maternity leave. I am due in March and apparently so is she!
