I am doing some research for our second baby which we plan to have at home. I had a great hospital birth for our DS with Linda Roberts CNM, whom I absolutly love! But since we're planing on being at home and she is primarily a hospital MW I have been wondering if the is the correct choice? Just wondering if anyone has any exsperiece with this around here. Yet again I love Linda but really want to make sure we choose the right person for our homebirth!

There are quite a few home birth midwives that serve the Ft. Wayne area. I have not had a home birth in Fort Wayne, but I am interviewing midwives. So far, I have found them to be completely knowledgeable friendly. I will definitely be doing a HB with one of them.

You're correct. I don't believe that Linda is currently attending home births because of her hospital-based practice. I'm a birth doula working in Fort Wayne. I'd be more than happy to give you a list of local midwives to interview. Since some of them are direct-entry, I'd prefer to give you the info privately. You can contact me through a private message, or through my contact info here. www.kathickey.com.

Have fun TTC!

Kat'sMeow--

 

Hello! I know this thread is old, but I was wondering if you would be able and/or willing to share the midwife information with me! I really want to have a home birth, but I'm having a hard time finding midwives who do home deliveries. For some reason the site isn't letting me PM and I couldn't get anywhere from your link. If you're willing, my email address is alyssamjo@hotmail.com  Thanks so much, in advance! I greatly appreciate your help!

Kat'sMeow, 

 

I am a first time to-be mama & am looking for certified midwives to interview for home birth in Fort Wayne.  I, too, see this thread is rather old, but wondered if you'd be willing to share with me the women's contact info that you know.  Thanks in advance & hope this finds you well.

 

any other info is greatly appreciated!
