Anyone know of any homebirth CNM's in Ohio? I am a SNM and would love to get some experience with homebirth. I live in Central Ohio, but would be willing to travel a bit. It has to be a CNM in order to count for my clinical experience....any ideas??

Thanks!

There is someone I can think of in the Toledo area. I don't want to call her out but I bet she'll pop in here

Not sure if the PP is referring to Linda, mothercat, of Mother's Own but she is out of MI (just across the border) if that matters. You can find her in the Toledo thread when she pops in.

Last pregnancy when I went looking there was http://born2bablessing.com/ but it looks like they are CPMs.

If anything maybe one of them could point you in a good direction.

In Ohio CNMs can only practice in a hospital or birth center (though I'm not sure there are any true birth centers in Ohio...I haven't been able to find one, anyway), and there is no certification for CPMs. Only DEMs can assist at homebirths, and even that is questionably legal. Stupid state :P

CNM's are permitted to attend home births in Ohio--most just choose not to. The Ohio Board of Nursing, which licenses Advanced Practice Nurses including CNM's, does not prevent it by statute or administrative rule. I have found a few CNM's who do practice homebirth here in Ohio.
There are currently no AABC birth centers in Ohio. Hopefully that will change someday!! That is my goal!
Thanks for everyone's help!

Oh thank you for the information! Everyone I've talked to has led me to believe that CNMs in Ohio "caught" practicing outside a hospital would lose their licensure/hospital priveleges ~ thanks for clearing it up I will have to look into this more as I am on the hunt for a homebirth MW in NE Ohio!

Miami Valley Hospital has a true birth center in it. It is called Family Beginings. It has three private birthing rooms with tubs, then a common kitchen/living room area. It has one on one nursing during your stay, but because of hospital policy you cannot VBAC in it. Your stay ins anywhere from 8-24 hours after birth, and everything is done right there in your room. The nurses in there are specially trained in natural birth and are dedicated to helping their patients with it.
