Hi, i'm planning for a homebirth in Chicago. It's not a very popular choice in this area and would like any advice on how to make sure i'm safe with the midwife I will hire. Is there anywhere where I can look up information on her or would any recommend a background check? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Homebirth midwife background check
You can get a background check and criminal history on someone with companies like intelius.com and others.
I would also look at yelp.com
With CNMs you can check a nursing board.
You can also do a google search, XYZ name plus homebirth death, or tragedy, or complaint and see what comes up.
