My partner and I are moving back to Missoula at the end of the year. I'll be about 7 months pregnant by then. I'm heartbroken to leave my amazing midwife in Portland, but so excited to be back in Missoula just in time to start our family. I'd appreciate any recommendations you have. I'd especially appreciate details and specifics.
This info is a little dated, as my sister who lived there several years ago.
If you were interested in a nurse-midwife, a friend of hers used Nancy Everett as a nurse-midwife. She said Nancy does VBACs (the hospital there supports VBACs I think), and had delivered a friend's twins vaginally too ....
There are several lay midwives in the area, but I don't know anything about them.
PMing you with a little more.
Hi there, if you are looking for a home birth midwife I would highly recommend Sandhano Dannison. Phone is (406) 880-0265. She attended our first birth and we are working with her again during a new pregnancy. She is warm, caring, intuitive and has lots of experience. She is very laid back but also is proactive and on the ball when circumstances dictate. I have had friends who have had to transfer to the hospital with her and she facilitated this transition well.
I am a La Leche League leader also. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
