I am moving from San Francisco to Seattle in March and will need to change my OB healthcare provider in my third trimester. :P (My little boy is due May 11th-ish) . I am wondering if anyone has experience with the Midwives @ Swedish Ballard or with Puget Sound Birth Center in Kikland (Specifically Heike Doyle, Andrea Henderson,& Nicole Donovan of Eastside Midwives who have room in their practice for a mom with my due date.) I really want to take a natural approach to childbirth and avoid meds and non-essential medical interventions if possible. If you have any information about these providers or can recommend others in the Seattle / Bellevue area that are supportive of this type of birth and environment, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks so much,
