Near Harrisburg - Midwife Rec's Please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm 7 weeks pregnant & just moved to Cumberland County right on the west shore from Harrisburg. I don't know much about the area & would love to hear your midwife and/or doula rec's. I'd prefer a homebirth, but would love to hear all of your recommendations. TIA!

Welcome to the area! I'm sure some mommas here can help you out, but there is an AP meetup group that covers Harrisburg. If you search meetup.com you can find it. Those mamas are real-life dilemma helpers!!

Anyone else have ideas?

Birth Care Midwives in Lancaster

Hi!

I just had my first baby in May and I went with the midwives from Birth Care and Family in Bart, PA. They are a group near Lancaster, so it was about an hour drive for us. But they are awesome. I know they do homebirths, but I'm not sure about the range that they will travel. I was interested in a waterbirth at their birthing centers. You should definitely look into them!

Good luck and Congrats!

I just posted a rec for Mary McLane in another thread here. She's a CNM based in Millersville (Lanc. Co) but I think that she does travel to other counties. She's fantastic! I used her for my attempted homebirth and plan on using her again for my next baby.

I live in Carlisle, and I had both my babes at birthcare in Quarryville. I had the oportunity to home birth with the second but opted to stay with my midwives at birthcare b/c I loved them so! Good luck! I love the area!

Thanks so much for the info & advice! I need to get on the ball & start interviewing midwives. If I just didn't feel so nauseated...
