I'm pregnant with my first baby and I'm new to West Lafayette. My mom had me (and five others) at home and I've never liked hospitals to begin with, so I was looking into the availabilities of midwives or birthing centers in the area and I've found that the only licensed midwives in the state are CNM. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with Lafayette/West Lafayette are and had any advice on how the hospital(s) around here are for deliveries or if there are any good alternatives to hospitals available, etc?
Basically, I want a drug-free vaginal delivery where the baby isn't taken away, fed formula, vaccinated, etc. I have a lot to learn as well, and I know that practices have changed (somewhat) from when my mom had awful experiences with hospitals, but I do want a low-intervention delivery, if possible.
Any information is appreciated! Thank you!
