Sue is my first choice and second would be Jane Drichta. We share a lot of the same philosophies surrounding birth. I would interview as many midwives as you can and get a feel for who you click with. You will know when its the right midwife.

Are you going for a HBAC? If so, there are NO midwives that can bill for that because of insurance stuff. They can bill for all the pre/post-partum stuff though.

Suzanne was my midwife, but Dr Brandy is my naturopath, and I adore her.  If I was planning on more babies and Suzanne was not available, I wouldn't hestiate to have Dr Brandy.

All of those midwives should be able to bill insurance then.

Jane can't bill insurance.  Sue and Brandy are both great choices.

 

Meant to also say, Jane is a great choice too...she just can't bill insurance yet.

Dr. Brandy is my current midwife. I'm due to deliver within the next few weeks. She's really great. I completely trust her knowledge, in fact, after the baby is here we plan to use her as our family naturopath as well. She's very laid back, easy to talk to and has lots of great information on how to naturally cure your every day pregnancy complaints. I highly recommend Brandy Ross :)

Thank you!! My HBAC was very healing and empowering and I cannot wait to give birth again!! =)

 

I thought I recently heard that Jane can now bill insurance. Maybe check with her again on that. Sounds like you planned to talk to her anyway. Best of luck to you!!!
