I have recently moved to the States in particular downtown Chicago and looking for a midwife. I had an appointment next week (8 weeks) with NMPG however I have just found out they are not in my insurance network. Can anyone recommend a midwife that is in the Aetna network, this is my first pregnancy and I don't know where to start the search.

Congratulations and welcome to  MDC!! 


I'm not sure how far you are willing to travel, but I delivered both of my older sons with West Suburban Midwives. The prenatal care was wonderful-very personal and I had two awesome births in the Alternative Birth rooms at West Sub hospital. I had Aetna HMO at the time and had no problems with coverage.


Their office is in Oak Park and they deliver at West Sub Hospital, also in Oak Park. Their office is in easy walking distance from Metra (UP West) and El (green line) stops.
