Homebirths around the Shippensburg/Newville PA area

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know anything about Crystal Pope or Judy Mentzer as midwifes? Has anyone recently had them as their midwife? Any current info for them. I can't seem to find anything current on Crystal due to her number being disconnected. And have had mixed reviews on Judy. Anyone else that maybe in my area?

I have never had a midwife before that wasn't licensed so I don't know all the things CPM or lay midwifes are able to do. My family has some genetic issues that could show up on an ultrasound. Do they usually do them?  Any info would be helpful?

Mary Mclane did both of my home births. She is from Lancaster pa. She is wonderful. She's a CNM. Rowan Cirelli (sp?) assisted with my first birth and was also great, she's also a CNM. I believe shes in cumberland county. i had 20 wk ultrasounds with both pregnancies.

I contacted Mary and I'm too far out of her area. Which is a bummer for me, because I have only heard good things about her. Rowan is a DEM not a CNM (according to her website) and I have gotten several mixed reviews of her. Maybe she is good at prenatal/doula but not so much the delivery.  Mainly the bad reviews are issues when they have to be transferred to the hospital because of various issues. Other than that she was great for those not having to be transferred. Thanks so much for your input!

Rowan didn't do my prenatal care, only assisted at my first birth. Mary was my primary midwife both times. I hope you find someone close enough for you!
