I'd be interested is Diane's contact info too. St. Charles is like 10 mins from me...thanks...
Okay, DH and I agreed that we really would like to do a homebirth for baby #2 (since this one will be the last) and so now I need to know where to go. I live in South Elgin, IL and have been looking online at all the midwives who do homebirths.
Right now I am thinking of going with Homefirst since the Rolling Meadows office and Naperville offices aren't too far out of the way and they seem to have everything I am looking for. Does anyone have any experiences with Homefirst? I have read a lot of messages about the pediatric care but have not seen too many on the homebirth services.
I also hear a lot of people talking about Sarah Simmons, Jennifer and Jewel. The messages are so positive that I would certainly look into going with one of them except that they are in the city...and anything in the city right now is kind of out of the way. Do they travel out this far??
So, other than those I have listed....are there any more homebirth providers out there that you would recommend? Any info you can all give me would be great!! PM's are welcome too. Thanks again for all the help.
Thanks for all the replies. I did get a reply back from Diane saying she is in AZ now...so what can you do.
Sarah was fully booked and not taking anyone new, and I never heard from Jewel & Jennifer (but I really wanted to avoid the city anyway...so no big deal)
So, after all my research and what not I have decided to go with Debbie Boucher in Libertyville. She's very nice and I feel really comfortable with her...even though its somewhat of a drive to get there....it'll all be worth it in the end. I am very excited!!
Thanks again for the help.
