we should talk more if/when we meet, but ... we just hired susan dodge (she can be found on this list: http://www.birthoptionsalliance.org/...2009-03-19.pdf
). she used to work with BirthCare and now has her own practice. I have my first prenatal appointment with her tomorrow, so we're just getting started, but we loved her at the interview, and the reference she provided us gave us an absolutely glowing review (as you would expect with a reference, but still, it was glowing!). we interviewed mairi and erin as well as one other midwife, and liked them too, but susan just seemed more our style. i think if you have the time, it's useful to interview more than one just to see what the differences are, and to confirm your choice.
