Hi everyone,

 

Nancy Harman has been my midwife for my last two births, but I have been unable to contact her. I am aware that most of the midwives no longer have backup and can't practice. I have lost her cell phone number, and it seems impossible to track down. I am guessing she's out of town, though bc her main phone mailbox is so full, it can't accept messages.

 

A midwife friend (a CNM) who is leaving the area bc of the situation said that there is still a possibility some MWs may have backup. Any info about that?

 

Also, I would consider a CPM, but to my knowledge, they have all been told to "cease and desist."

 

My husband thinks we should relocate for the birth, but I want to give birth in THIS house! I am not very far along, but I would still like to rest easy knowing that I have care.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks so much,


Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif
