The midwife I used for my last homebirth is no longer practicing, and the doula moved to California, lol. I'm wondering if anyone here is from the Milwaukee area and has had a homebirth -- I'd love recommendations!

As far as I know, the only midwives actively practicing in Milwaukee at the moment are Jan Wolfenberg & Deb Studey (there is another CPM who assists Jan, but I dont think she does births as a primary anymore/yet. Pam is her name, maybe Pam Rhodes?) Myself and friends have used them. Coral Slavin who owns & operates the birth center is also a doula. Im an aspiring doula myself, if Ur looking for a volunteer doula to save money
here are the websites for Jan & Coral/Well Rounded Maternity. HTH!

Debby Studey was my midwife for my homebirth 8 months ago! I LOVE her!! She also was my friends midwife for her 2 homebirths and my other friends planned homebirth - hospital transfer.

For a doula I recommend Vanessa Earhart, I used her thru the doula program at Birth Place @ Columbia Center but she is an independent doula as well. PM me if you'd like contact info.

Hi - I just had Deb Studey as my midwife in March! Everything was absolutely wonderful and I recommend her. I just started a Homebirth and Birth Center group on Facebook for SE WI. Let me know if you can't find it searching on Facebook.

I am using Pam Rhodes for my homebirth in September. She is in FDL. But I know she and Jan Wolfenberg work together quite often. I have really had quite the awesome connection with Pam -- I'm really excited to see how the birth goes in a few months!! Her e-mail is: fdlmidwife@yahoo.com if you're interested in getting in touch with her.
