I have a friend who used April and loved her.
I used Mary Barnett and know 3 other families that had her deliver their babies. Mary used to work in the hospitals before MW's were kicked out, so she is not as crunchy/laid back as some MW's. She harped on me about weight gain, was persistent about STD testing, to name a few things that bugged the hell out of me.
Looking back, I could have interviewed more MW's to try to find one with a personality that jived better. The pregnancy was unplanned, I had an IUD at the time, it was complicated. So I went with someone who had a lot of experience and it turned out just fine.
Good luck with your search!
I called Melanie Henderson, I'm waiting for a call back. Before my BFP I was thought it might take a while to conceive because I'm still nursing...now I'm nervous that by the time I figure out which midwife I'd like to hire she'll be all booked up!
