Hi mamas...I am just writing to see if anyone has any recommendations or big fat "STAY AWAY FROM"s for any midwives or birthing centers in the Puyallup/Tacoma area? I just found out today that we are expecting our 4th baby, and it's a bit of a shock to be honest. So we haven't done any preliminary research. I would prefer a homebirth if at all possible. Also, we are on Tricare, and I don't know how that works when it's legal to have a homebirth, haha. Thank you in advance!
Midwife/FSBC in Puyallup?
Yes, Marie is a ND and LM. Here is her number: (206) 356-7299. Her office in Puyallup.
I had the my first two with Nancy Spencer, who has a beautiful birth center on Lake Tapps that's next to her home. She was more medically inclined, more involved. That reassured me with my first birth, but by my third I was more confident and wanted someone more hands-off. Went with Dawn Wadleigh in Tacoma, and The Birthing Inn. Could have done a home-birth with either midwife, but I decided I preferred birth center. Birth center also allowed me a water birth in big huge tub!
