I am looking for either a midwife or a natural friendly Dr. either around Rolla, MO or Springfield, MO. Can anyone help?

I don't know of any, but I don't want you to feel nobody's reading your post. My family lives in Edgar Springs, but they wouldn't know any midwives. And they pretty much come to St. Louis for all their medical needs, since we don't like the Rolla hospital.

I'll tell you the first two places I would ask: 1) Foods For Health on Highway 63 in Rolla, and 2) Dr. Atkinson at Greenwood Farms. He's a dentist who practices in Rolla and has a sustainable farm in Newburg. He also has school-age grandkids, and might know of naturally-minded practitioners in the area.

Good luck finding someone!

There is a CNM who does homebirths who is fairly crunchy, but I can't remember her name. I THINK her first name is Lori and I do believe she is in Springfield's phonebook. Sorry that's not much help.

Lori Link is her name. Do you live in Springfield? I doubt she will travel to Rolla but you can always call her and find out. PM me if you'd like her info .

Sorry, I should have added that I have used her for two homebirths now and she is wonderful. If she is in the phonebook it may be under "Motherworks". Good luck with your search. There is no one else I could have trusted more. I had a few things come up with my homebirth that we were not anticipating and she handled them beautifully.
