Hi!  We're currently expecting our 2nd baby, and looking for a midwife in the Battle Creek-Jackson-Lansing-AA area. We live in Jackson.  Our first was born at the Greenhouse Birth Center in Okemos, but now that they've closed we're exploring options for a home birth.  So far we've come across a few that seem good-Linda Healey in Battle Creek, New Moon in AA, and Sue Rusk in Jonesville.  We were interested in Kate Mazzarra, but she apparently had a bad experience with the hospital here and now won't attend births in Jackson.  Does anyone have experience with any of those midwives, or are there others that you'd recommend?  Thanks for your help!

I had a homebirth with Linda Healey. I can not speak enough amazing kind words about her. She was absolutely wonderful!  I would recommend her time and time again to anyone wanting a homebirth in that area.

I loved my pregnancy care and home birth with New Moon in 2009. You should also check out Stacia Proefrock at Trillium Birth Services in Ypsi--she's awesome (I don't know her travel radius).

Married to P and mama to DS (1/09)blahblah.gifand DD  (09/13 babygirl.gif). I'm into friends and family, gardening, exercise, yoga, reading, knitting, photos, traditional foods, breastfeeding, home birth, babywearing, and much more.

Hi! My midwife, Kim Woodard, studied under Linda Healey. She was absolutely amazing. Here is her number =) (269) 420-0649. She is a wealth of knowledge and is based in Battle Creek. My doula was also wonderful! Her name is Erika Gothberg and her number is (269) 589-8834.

Stacia and New Moon, I know a lot of women who were really happy with them. Pat Kramer is who I used because of her low transfer rates, so many years of BTDT experience, low tech great outcomes and really after I interviewed her I just knew she was the right person to assist.

Spark and her four firecrackers.
