I just moved to Indiana this month from Arkansas (where lay midwifery is legal and I've had three home births) and am looking for a midwife in Muncie or surrounding areas who could provide home birth services. I know the laws concerning home births and midwifery are different in Indiana and was hoping I might get some help or information here. Thank you!

Has anyone PM'd you?


I used to live in Muncie but have spent most of the past 10 years elsewhere. Anyways, I am a Doula familiar with the Muncie birth scene somewhat, but I am actually moving back to Muncie in about a month. I can send you a few referrals if no one has connected with you yet.

I highly recommend Believe Midwifery.  My son was born at home last November and it was a wonderful experience.  I'm not positive you're in her service area but there's a good chance.  http://believemidwiferyservices.com


Indiana law only allows CNMs for home birth.  Unfortunately, there are very, very few here.  I would highly suggest calling the office ASAP if you are interested.  They have a strict limit on the number of clients they accept each month.


I hope you find a match and have a great birth!

I love Brandi Wood, with Home4Birth. I have had 3 of my last at home with her and she is an amazing well educated Midwife!


Good luck with your search!

I also had used Brandi. It was a wonderful experience! It was my first homebirth and I felt completely safe and comfortable with her.
