New to the site. Looking for any recommendations on a midwife for an Ann Arbor home birth. First preganancy, due in August. Yay!
I've heard great things on previous threads about Pat Kramer, but can't seem to find any contact information for her. I am attending the next open house for New Moon Midwifery as well.
Everyone I know in the area gave birth at U of M. Any and all personal recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
There are a lot of midwives here start here, you can talk to the people a the Center for the Childbearing year, too. They will have names and reccs for you.
If you want to see Pat Kramer, I believe you need to find someone who has birthed with her to refer you.
Look for the Ann Arbor and Pregnancy sections of the "Michigan Natural Parenting" site.

I have heard of Kate Mazzara but haven't heard from anyone that actually used her, not sure of the other two, but I will look into it.
Since I'll be at the Center for the Childbearing Year for the New Moon open house, so I'll see what other references they have.
Have either of you personally used any of those midwives. I would really love to get a personal recommendation from someone who had a positive experience.
Thanks again for all the great help!
I've used Kate for both my homebirths and worked with her as well. Love her and highly recommend her. I also had the privilege to have Stacia at one of my homebirths too! Both are great midwives.
