Betsy Baker, cnm

She was my midwife at my waterbirth at NMI a few years ago. She is out on her own now. NMI is not such a friendly place anymore.

I HIGHLY recommend Betsy!!!

No, she does not. If you are looking for a CNM who does, I know one

Namaste, Tara

Betsy is my midwife! I had a Obgyn for my DS and DD, he was wonderful until 6 mos into dd's pregnancy he got really grumpy with me all the time, and he didn't follow my slight birth plan. Dh didn't get to cut the cord either time, and I ended up with an epi because he made me go to a hospital where I wasn't registered and I had to do reg. Also they wouldn't even let me rock in a rocking chair. This was St Vs. His receptionist was always really snotty with me, but when you trust someone to keep you and baby safe its hard to switch.
I love Betsy! I really trust her with our safety too. Its nice to call her and most of the time she answers (no receptionist) If she doesnt answer she calls back and doesnt leave you waiting all day I still have a few months to go but I'm really looking forward to having my baby with her help.
