When contacting a midwife, I would simply tell them what you need of them and see if that is something they can provide you with.

Basically, I vote too for Desiree and the Bella Vie ladies. I think you would certainly find support for your desire to continue a pregnancy. But I would also say that the most important thing for ALL mamas is that they're more focused on providing really compassionate, gentle, mama centered care, than pushing any kid of agenda.

So I'm curious, who did you end up going with?
I would really love an openly Christian Midwivery practice in the metro area... I know a couple of gals at my church have found some midwives they enjoy but I think I struggle a lot with the eastern philosophy that can accompany a lot of the practices here. I'm expecting my 7th in May and have seen a LOT in my time!

That being said, my 5 month old DD was born at home with Pamela Echiverio and Monica Wood (and apprentice Emily). I asked them about their beliefs when I met them and felt comfortable with where they were coming from spiritually. They were WONDERFUL I really can't say enough good about them. Three of the most wonderful caring women I've ever met. Highly recommend them.
