Hi! I've read through a bunch of the posts and can't find exactly what I'm looking for. I want to find a good, caring midwife for a hospital delivery in an IHC hospital (IMC, alta view, riverton...). If anyone has any recommendations I would really appreciate it. Thanks

First of all, Alta view doesn't have any midwives with hospital privileges there.

I know there are 2 midwives who deliver in a hospital on the west side (Taylorsville maybe?) but I don't know anything about them.  

The other two groups that I know about are the IMC midwives and the LDS hospital midwives.  They used to all be a part of the same group at the LDS hospital before IMC was built.  Then they split to cover both places.  Both groups do "group care" so you get a different midwife at almost every appt and you never know which one will be at your delivery.  They all have different personalities and different ways of handling things but they all work under the same hospital restrictions.  

They all offer free consultations so you can go in and meet with a midwife and ask questions to see if their model of care is what you are looking for.  I would highly recommend doing that.  

Also, look into freestanding birth centers.  If you are going with hospital CNM's just because of your insurance you may be able to find a cheaper option with a birth center even though you'd have to pay for it yourself.  There are a lot of options in the valley, it just depends on what is most important to you.

My sister went with Julie Jones, who now delivers at the Riverton hospital, and she was great.

I have heard good things about Julie Jones, and about her partner Paula Thacker.  I believe they share on call duties?  And my coworker just gave birth at IHC Riverton, where Julie and Paula practice, and LOVED the hospital.  She didn't use a midwife, but she was very impressed with the facility.
