Recomendations on a Midwife for Homebirth in Towson/Baltimore? - Page 2

post #21 of 29

Ugh! Can't believe MD is going to be out yet another midwife. This is seriously depressing....

I'm sorry to hear that.

Thanks for all of the great information.

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!

Joey Pascarella CNM of Sacred Journey Midwifery (mentioned by previous poster) is my midwife & is based in southern Maryland, south of Waldorf. (1.5 - 2 hr drive to Towson with minimal traffic)  I don't know exactly where she lives because prenatal visits are done in my home.  She used to have office hours in Waldorf but no longer.

There's also Susan Dodge CNM based in Odenton & Karen Webster CPN based in Elkton.  Searching any of these names on MDC will net you lots of reviews!

Hi Katie - Joey is not currently practicing as far as I know. I used Susan Dodge CNM for my second homebirth but prenatal care happens at her home office. She doesn't accept first-time moms or VBACs. Here is her contact: http://m.healthgrades.com/provider/susan-dodge-xsykn

Best wishes!
