Homebirth midwife background check

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

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.

There are lots of Chicago area hb midwives. Only CNMs are licensed in Illinois.
Check out birthlink.com

I am seeing Hillary Kaisser at gentle birth care and am very happy with her.

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.
