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!


Proud wife to my handsome husband  Malachi David (2010) and Jeremiah Daniel (2012) joined our family via two lovely homebirths...planning another homebirth for the new belly baby, due April 16, 2015!  Doula for 8 years and apprentice midwife for almost 3!

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.
