Hello everyone!

 

I'm 9 weeks along with 3rd baby and I would like to know if anyone knows of a good midwife that would do a home water birth in the Pittsburgh area (South Fayette to be more exact). Thanks!

Hi, I am from the Beaver County area, and I know of a midwifery service called Merry Blessings. They are great! Here's the link. http://www.merryblessings.com/index.html

I used a doula from this service and she was awesome! GL

Would you be willing to also message me with any possible names for exploring a home birth option?  I am due next March with my fourth and final baby and have had very smooth deliveries with midwives all three times and would like to go even lower key this time if possible.  Thanks.  :)

Just curios, is water birthing the preferred choice when at home? I have seen so many different options on this forum and I see a lot of interest in water birth.

I used to work a little in Pittsburg as a Midwife but since I have moved away. I understand there are a couple new midwives there. I don't know them or their experience. But I worked a lot with Ellen Benek (724) 866-3610. She is very good. She is very calm. Very experienced. Happy birthing.

About water birthing a good place to start for more information is http://www.yourwaterbirth.com
That's not the only place or way to birth at home just an option. Many women are drawn to water as a peaceful relaxing experience. Water birth has been described as the midwifes epidural. Because many women describe the experience of laboring in water as lessening the pressure, heaviness, tension. Making the intensity of the contraction more manageable. Water birth isn't for everyone. But I like at least the option for my clients.
