Homebirth midwives in Northeast/Central Wisconsin

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello Wisconsin mamas! I had a homebirth with DD1 in 2011, and just found out there may be another slated for this summer. smile.gif I had a good experience with my midwife, but I am curious about what other local mamas have experienced. Thoughts on local midwife options?

Appleton Community Midwives - Andi Raine & Anja Farin
Country Midwife/Oakgrove Midwifery (Green Bay) - Stacy Vandenput
In the Beginning Midwifery (Iola) - Jane Crawford & Korina Pubanz & Christie Reynolds
Birthwise (Appleton) - Jill Coulter & AnnMarie Rian
Birth with Midwife (Cascade) - Ginnie Priest
Guardian Midwifery (Fond du Lac) - Pam Rhodes

Looking forward to hearing from you! Add anyone I missed. smile.gif

Congratulations! It looks like your post may have been missed, so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have a recommendation to share?

I lived in Appleton for a long time and can maybe help. My experience with these midwives is really through me being a midwifery student rather than a client. I will only respond about the midwives that I know :)

 

The midwives I have seen in action the most often were Stacy Vandeput and Jill Coulter. I think they are both great. I was at a birth as a doula once in which Pam Rhodes was the assisting midwife and she was really lovely, too! I never made it out to any births with Andi and Anja, but I like them both quite a bit as people!!

 

Have you interviewed around? I think it can be nice to chat with the midwives you are interested in and just get a sense for if they sit right with you or not.

My son was born with Jill Coulter at Birthwise and it was wonderful.  She was a great midwife and would definitely go back to her.  She was very supportive, did not pressure at all, but also knows when someone needs to risk out of the practice.  She also has a good relationship with area doctors and if someone does risk out she knows of natural friendly doctors.

Hello! I had an attempted hbac with stacy at oak grove. Despite my home birth not going as planned (totally not a result of anything she or I did, I have a truely narrow pevis) I was very happy with my care. Stacy is a very trusting and naturally minded person and I always felt respected and in control of my own care. She is more hands off which is exactly what i wanted. She was calm even during my transfer and she stayed at the hospital until my son and were in recovery from my c section and still came to my house for follow up once we were home. Feel free to pm me if you have questions! Good luck!
