I'm new here, looking for homebirth midwives that serve the Rice Lake area for a friend of mine. Anyone live near there and used a midwife you really love and have recommendations? Thanks! :)
Rice Lake, WI homebirth midwives?
Hi there! Welcome to MDC. :)
My parents have a home in Cumberland, WI, which is near Rice Lake. We visit there often, so I know a few things about the area. One thing I don't know is the names of any local midwives! I do know a resource for finding some names, though.
May I suggest that your friend pay a visit to the Island City Food Co-op (http://www.islandcityfoodcoop.com/) in Cumberland? Every time I go there, I see or hear something about the local birth community. The co-op has a bulletin board where midwives and doulas advertise their services. And if I'm not mistaken, one of the co-op employees is herself a midwife.
