HI everyone. My name is Reb and i just found these boards.
I just found out I'm pg with #2. I just moved to IL about a month ago, so i don't know ANYONE. Not to mention, IL is not the easiest place to find a mw. if anyone has any advice i'd LOVE to hear it. I plan on asking my chiropractor next week and at LLL later this month. the internet has turned up nothing but CNMs.

Hi Reb,

Have you tried searching at http://www.birthpartners.com ? or Citizens for Midwifery? Their page for your state is http://www.cfmidwifery.org/states/states.asp?ST=18

Also, it's important to remember, whether the Illinois Legislature *recognizes* or not, each state is not a sovereign dictatorship, and you are free to seek health care anyWHERE you choose (Indiana, Tennessee, Arkansas... France).

Good Luck in your search!

thanks for the links. i'll definitely try them.
midwifery is legal in IL, it's just that since the yvonne cryns thing it's impossible to find one. all the IL mw's (besides CNMs) took their names/emails, etc. off directories, so you can only find one through word of mouth.

Reb,

try calling Joanna @ birthlink. the web site is www.birthlink.com
your best bet is probably LLL, though.
where in IL do you live?
