Does anyone have any experience with any of these midwives? Dion Rich, Grass Valley 530-477-2804 Dania Shelton, Nevada City 530-274-2155 www.daniashelton.com Jessica Mairs, Sierra Homebirth, Grass Valley 530-273-7430 www.sierrahomebirth.com Shelia Ann Shelton, Colfax 530-346-2766 I live in Gold Run (above Colfax) and although I love the midwives dh and I have interviewed down the hill from us (Citrus Heights, Carmichael, Roseville, Penryn, etc) I just don't think I'll want to go 45mins one way for a prenatals. Plus, I didn't get an overly confident dealing with snow vibe from most of them either. Soooo....we're now looking closing to home and the above midwives are who we've found so far. Just wondering if anyone has used any of them and if so, what was your experience, feel for them? Also are there any I'm missing? Thanks! :)

I've been to births with Jessica and found her to be an extremely skilled, sweet midwife.

Do you happen to know if Jessica has any experience with Waterbirth? Also, if you don't mind my asking, were you there as a doula, an assistant, or something else? Just curious. innocent.gif

We both apprenticed with the same midwife for a short period of time right before she got licensed and I went off to nursing school :)  And she does have waterbirth experience (I think most midwives in the area will...).

Again, if you don't mind me asking, which midwife did the two of you apprentice under? What did you think of her?

Hi Witchy, I live in Penn Valley and just interviewed Jessica and her partner Melania, and we loved them. I also want to interview Sheila and then will make my decision. Jessica has done many water births as Katie said and even has two free tubs and one you'd have to pay for.
