Ugh! Can't believe MD is going to be out yet another midwife. This is seriously depressing....
I'm about two months now. For my first pregnancy, in 2008, I started out with Kathy Slone and then switched to Evelyn Muellen. Evelyn actually didn't make my birth (she was at another), so I did the first home birth on my own. I'd really like to do another homebirth, this time with a midwife in attendance :). It seems like there are few options.
If anyone has current info about home birth midwives who work in Baltimore City (northeast baltimore), I'd be grateful. Please PM me.
I just joined Mothering to post the most recent info I've found in my search for a HB MW. It hasn't been easy at all. Options are few and far between for MD moms-to-be.
I wanted a CNM so that is all I looked for.
Evelyn M. is no longer practicing.
As far as I am aware, Joey P is also no longer practicing.
Mairi and Erin of M.A.M.A.s are practicing but are limited to a 10 mile radius from Silver Spring.
Susan Dodges does not attend 1st pregnancies (we just spoke on the phone).
I am seriously considering going with Special Beginnings. We went last night to their orientation and were impressed with the facility and the nature of the MW there. Susan was my last hope for a HB this first time around.
Hope this helps other new mamas in their search!
