Hi! 2 kids later - it is our new 3rd pregnancy that has me plopping down to find community here! We are brand new to western mass - and just starting my 6th week of pregnancy. We are so excited, but I don't know the community here - and I'm hoping I can find the help and support I need to plan a home birth here without the "in" that comes with being somewhere awhile.

Where in w. Mass? I lived in Greenfield for a year and have a friend there who is MW if you want a recommendation. The natural birthing community is very large though, you shouldn't have a problem.

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

rainbowmoon - I would love a recommendation. Now it's nearly 9 weeks and I'm in the Berkshires. I've only found 1 CPM in the whole county. There has been poor communication between us for whatever reason and I have had both positive and negative feedback given to me, so I'm feeling like I need to consider more options. They just all seem to be in the Pioneer valley. If I had a starting point there - maybe I could determine if the distance wasn't that big of a deal
