Home Birth Midwife Recommendations - Pioneer Valley, MA

I am due in mid February and am looking for reputable midwives to interview in my area. I am looking for a gifted and grounded midwife with lots and lots (20 years+ is ideal) of experience.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if she's going to be around in February, but if not, perhaps she has some recommendations of other midwives in her field.
She's a WONDERFUL woman, and has a great sense of the spiritual aspect of childbirth, empowering mamas and families, as well as a love and understanding of child birth. I believe she's been a home birth midwife for 15+ years, anyway, with many many many births under her belt, including her own daughters.
Her name is Monique Gauthier, and she lives in Shutesbury.

Have you interviewed the River Valley Midwives? I don't know of any other homebirth midwives in the area who have been practicing for as long as they have, if that's your priority.

Curious if you found someone and who you chose. Also happy to talk options with you if you want, I'm a doula and childbirth educator in the area.
