I I was just on their website and saw that Indiana nurse midwives is closed. Does anybody hav any information or know the story? Is the birth center closed also?

On a side note, does anyone have names is CMNs who deliver at methodist or community south? Or very baby/mother/natural friendly doctors downtown or on the southside?

Thanks!

The birth center is closing/ did close as of this May. I'm only familiar with homebirth midwives in the area, but I'll ask around (have several doula friends who might know). When are you expecting?

I just attended a birth at St Francis and Dr Dunlop was the OB.  I was pretty pleased with how he handled the birth.  There are midwives from HealthNet at Methodist.

 

There is a rumor that the birth center may reopen under new midwives, but I haven't seen anything official.

Thanks for the info. We are due in January and were hoping to use hte Birth Center if we weren't able to do a home birth.  I am trying to get in touch with a MW in the area about a HB but haven't been able to get through. 

 

I really do hope it reopens.  What a lost resource to the area if it is closed.
