a few months ago i posted, wondering how to find a midwife. we finally found one(she is a lay midwife) but now, 3 mo & 2 weeks before due date she has backed out, due to personal reasons. we had such a tough time finding a midwife that would come out to us that i am now wondering what to do. my partner and i have tossed around the idea of going it alone, but we both have slight reservations since this is our first (not completely opposed though). So, now, we are thinking of a doula but, once again, i'm wondering if we can find one that will come all the way out to us.
for those who asked last time what my location was: i am a little over 1 hour from jefferson city and columbia, and about 30 minutes from sedalia (south of hwy 50). there was a doula from columbia that responded before, however i have since lost her info. if you have suggestions we welcome them!
thanks for your help!
