Although we do have MW in my area, none of them are willing and/or able to preform homebirths.
I had a somewhat positive birth experience with a midwife in a hospital for my DD, but if I had not gone into labor a week early, I would have been subjected to whomever was on call, most likely some random OB who would not have been very kind to my unique requests (hypnobirthing, no IV etc)
I would really like to have my new baby (due in Dec) at home but I am having a heck of a time finding a midwife.
Any help from you would be most appreciated. What is really irritating is that right across the lake in VT there are dozens of homebirth MW's! Less then an hour away, but none of them are certified in NY.
Anyway, thank you to all.
maybe someone there knows.
maybe try asking the librarians in the town library. they know lots of stuff!
call LLL they may be able to help too!
Howdy! (special wave to the big sis! sweet cuddles to the wee one!)
I think you will know who I am too!
Hello! I saw a message in a thread about you knowing of someone in the plattsburgh area, having a vermont licsense to home deliver a baby. I am due at the end of august and am soo eager and desperate, just as all the other ladies from the thread, to find someone. Seemingly impossible, but seeing your comment has given me some hope. If you could please get back to me so that I could contact this person, even for them to answer questions, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank You. If you feel you want to email me directly (if at all) [email protected]. I just made this profile so I could write you back :) Once again, thank you.
Sincerely, Audra Green
