Looking for a midwife (or doctor) to for natural, non-intervention style birth of twins in...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

At 18+ weeks, we found out yesterday that we're having twins! We are very excited, unfortunately, our midwife doesn't deliver babies medically classified as (high risk).  She recommended some other professionals, some of whom are midwives that work with doctors in a hospital setting, but I've not been impressed so far.  Does anyone know of a midwife or doctor is willing to let my body do what it was made to do, not pressure me to allow things I don't really want and not interfere without good reason?  I live in Tallahassee, FL, but I'm willing to travel a few hours if needed.

I recommend that you contact the other practicing homebirth midwives in your area and the doulas, too.  Ask them if they know of anyone who will support you in having a vaginal twin birth.  Unfortunately, in Florida, there are no licensed midwives who can legally assist you with a twin homebirth.  That does not mean there are no licensed midwives who will not help you, though.  You may have to travel south or out of this state...not just for the birth, but for a consultation, too.  No licensed midwife in Florida will tell you over the phone that she catches twins.
