New to NE and discovering very quickly that the hospital and OBs in the North Platte area are.just barbaric and the C-sect rate is way too high. We are looking for a homebirthing midwife to assist with our birth in January. Underground is OK! I really don't want to have to fly one out from the East Coast just to homebirth, but I will if that's what it takes. Any information you guys can lend would be great. We have found one in Grand Island but we really don't want the whole birthing center thing.
Thanks
Mandy

There are lots of us in NP area who have had homebirths.  It's not easy, but there are ways.  Contact me if you want to know more

Hi! I'm Laura, regional director for Nebraska Friends of Midwives: Panhandle Chapter. Since I represent the panhandle of Nebraska, I don't have any contacts with midwives in North Platte, but I do know of one in CO who may travel that far. Feel free to get in touch with me by email~ bleggott at hot mail dot com ~, and to like our page on facebook to get connected with our group. We are trying to increase the access to midwives all across the state of Nebraska!

I am having trouble responding to your post.  I can answer any questions you have about my 4 homebirths in the North Platte area.  This part of the state tries to make it seem weird, but there are lots of natural mamas  who get through under the radar anyhow.

The city of North Platte and an awful lot of its mothers love their ob clinic.  It is not a stellar clinic, but it is all they know, and they love it.  The rest of us support each other and do things the natural way and just go about our business of raising our families.  

I'd love to visit with you.

What "chapter" would North Platte attend?  I am sort of interested in seeing us get more public support for homebirth in this area.

Thanks for your patience in waiting for a reply.  Something about my security settings won't let me reply to your pm's.  I would like to know more about you.  Please tell me a little about yourself and also any specific questions you have about home birth in this area.  Thanks, Sadie

Well, I'm Sarah. Mom of 3, ages 9, 8 and 4 (all born at home, in Florida) . Im 11 weeks along and went to my first prenatal appt this afternoon in North Platte. I guess what I'm mainly wondering is if my only option for a home birth is a UC...or if there are any home birth midwives in the area...? Again, thanks so much for responding! smile.gif
