Feedback for Anderson IN Community /St. Vincent Hospital Midwives

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone had a personal recommendation for any of the CNMs that practice at the hospital in Anderson (I believe it is St. Johns now?). I am strongly considering a homebirth, however I'm still trying to choose my care provider and wanted to pursue all my options to get a feel for where I will be most comfortable as this is my first. The names of the current midwives are: Mabrey Chamberlin, Allison Dorris, Ginny Maher and Charlotte Meeker. Any experience with any of them? Or with the hospital in general? Thank you so much for anything you can tell me!

I used the St. John's midwives when they were at Community. Charlotte Meeker delivered my son. Overall I was medium happy with her. It was my first birth, baby was in posterior position at delivery. I had bad tearing which I am not sure Charlotte worked very hard to keep from happening. But I was not tried down to a monitor and allowed the move around and birth in the position that felt right. I know a couple homebirth midwives if you are needing help finding them if you are going that route.

Do you live in Anderson? I was not sure how far Lynda would travel for a birth. I have a friend who used her for two of her births.

I'm about 15 minutes south of Anderson, 40 minutes from Lynda. Is your friend happy with her birth experiences? I don't know why I still feel a little hesitant on a home birth if an emergency were to happen.

Yes... She was happy with her experience. If you private message me your e-mail I will pass it along to her and see if she can answer questions you have.
