Looking into options...moved to St. Clair county, IL from California (well most recently we were on the road for 18 months). I know the Illinois midwife situation and do not need a licensed midwife "lay" midwife would be perfectly wonderful.
Any ideas? Contacts? Thanks!!
I see an NP at Dr. Dalla-Riva's office in Maryville. She has privileges at Anderson Hospital. Anderson is very supportive of natural childbirth options. Her name is Monica Major-Harris. Their office is at the hospital.

I would wait and find a Midwife. I am sorry I don't know of one but if you can't find one you like go across the river. I would stay clear of anderson. They may say they are natural birth friendly but they aren't.
I had a homebirth in St. Clair county in 2006. My midwife is no longer practicing (I think.....), but we used a MW from across the river. It was a haul for appointments, but well worth it. PM me if you'd like more information.
