Hi everyone! I just found out that we will be most likely moving to Peoria, Il in September. I am a student midwife, so finding a midwife to apprentice with is my top priority. I know the legal climate in Illinois is horrible regarding homebirth midwives, but if anyone knows of a midwife that is taking apprentices within an hour of the 61604 area code, could you please private message me? Alternately, if the midwife is concerned about giving out her contact info to a stranger, maybe she could contact me through email first? My email is handmaidenbirth [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you so much for any help!

The only legal mw I know in Peoria is brande ruskusky. I don't know if she takes on birth assistants. Have you tried to connect with any of the Illinois midwifery groups? Might start with illinoismidwifery.org.
