Does anyone know where I can find a midwife for this? I really want a UC but for the sake of my partner am willing to go with a midwife if I can find one.

Thanks

Honestly I think you will have to try some midwives in Toledo and see how far they are willing to travel. Most midwives will travel a bit of distance. You are probably too far for any of the Dayton area midwives. I got some numbers from Midwives Alliance of North America: http://mana.org On the left click on resounces and then click find a midwife. You have to email them to get any info. There are probably other midwives out there who haven't given their info to MANA, but it's a good place to start.

Also there are some midwives who cover the Bluffton area (mennonite community) but I am not sure how to find them. Good luck!

I am doing great! Nick and I found some in toledo but the fees through me back. I am perfectly fine going unassisted honestly I just want them for the prenatal care and nick doesnt feel we should have to pay $3000 for them to sit there and watch me deliver the baby lol But I would still like more info Are you still in mccomb?

How much will they charge you for only prenatal care? I am sure the $3000 is for prenatal, birth and postpartum care. Good luck.

I also wanted to add that the price often varys a LOT among midwives so it may be worth shopping around. (That is, if you are still interested in going the midwife route) Good luck again!

I found a midwife who was willing to see me jhust for prenatal care and she charged me a per-visit fee for each visit, rather than her usual "global" fee. You might be able to find a midwife willing to do the same?
i'm not in your area anymore, but I graduated from Tiffin columbian high school!

I am sorry to hear that! I ask since Nick and I moved to mccomb

I have shopped around but I have only found the ladies in toledo. This area dont seem to have many midwives.

To the PP who charged per visit did you UC? If so what do you say to them to explain you just want the prenatal care? I have birth certificate info already I am just worried about anyone finding out that may put us in fear (children services and such). My family and support group is great with me doing this on my own I am just worried about outsiders.

The midwife i found is Uc-supportive, so she was OK with just providing prenatal care as long as it was clear that is what it was. No paying for "just pnc" visits and then me calling her in labor for help or whatever. I had to make a choice prior to 36 weeks. which i thought was completely fair. she also documented that i was seeing her for PNC only and would be using a "different provider" for the birth.
yes, i did UC.
