So I just moved to springfield il from arkansas and just found out im pregnant. Where are all the springfield midwives? Even the ONE we had in arkansas had a website and reviews and its much less common there. The few I have found here dont have reviews I like. I dont want a doctor that practices as a midwife. I want a midwife to deliver my baby as a friend. Please help!

Most homebirth midwives in Illinois are not licensed, and can be prosecuted for attending a birth.  There are a few CNMs who have homebirth practices, one in Peoria, which is I think the closest to you.


If you're on facebook, you could check out Illinois Friends of Midwives to connect with some other moms in the Springfield area.  Honestly, most of the moms I know from Springfield choose to birth unassisted, but I don't know if that's because they can't get a midwife, or because it's their preference over having a midwife.

We're working on passing legislation to get Certified Professional Midwives licensed in Illinois.  If you're willing to lend a hand by writing letters and making phone calls, you can also connect to that with Illinois Friends of Midwives.
