Has anyone used a Doula or Midwife in Pueblo? I am looking for recommendations!
I emailed Jessica Nipp a while ago and she responded that she "rarely serves the Pueblo region" which was dissapointing. She also refered me to Sharon Mc Dougal who never responded to my email. So far I am really unimpressed with the options in Pueblo.
I don't know how long you have lived here or your birth situation or history but I have had horrible luck with almost all doctors and hospitals here, I can't wait to move away.
Thanks for trying! I think I am going to try to contact Sharron again. I'm not sure if I'll be able to have a homebirth since I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy. I work full time so going to the springs for care is not a good option for me. I am hoping that I can either find a willing midwife or a decent OB and a Doula.
I had the BEST EVER CNM with my last baby in Wyoming. I believe she's a clinical instructor at the University of Colorado Hospital now.
I know this is an older thread, but Jan Eklund is a great midwife and located in South Colorado Springs, but serves Pueblo. There is also Emily Likens that serves the Pueblo area. I would recommend either of them.
Kim Littau is also a FANTASTIC doula in CS but will come to Pueblo. Her number is (719) 321-0247
Wife to a wonderful husband, mom to 5 amazing boys, 2 m/c and Knox Cornelius our 5th son born at 15weeks 12/3/2011, Lillian Faith our 1st daughter, born at 14 weeks May 19, 2012 (Turner Syndrome).
It looks like Emily Likens isn't in Colorado anymore. Unless I just suck at Google.
I recently saw a CNM in Pueblo who mentioned there were two homebirth midwives in Pueblo. I know of Sharon McDougal, but I can't find another. I'm hoping Emily wasn't the only other midwife in Pueblo.
Emily Likens did leave from what I heard. I wonder if she is talking about Gina? She also left though. We are moving to Westcliffe soon I hope and I am wondering if there is a midwife there... I want more children but I don't want to go to a hospital if I don't have to. I guess I could just walk in pushing if I really have to go that way.
Anyone still need info on midwives/doulas in Pueblo?
Probably some other CS midwives would go down there too, check http://www.coloradomidwives.org/find-a-midwife and do a google search.
Susie Trujillo is in Canon City but I heard she is on sabbatical right now.
