I met up with a wonderful ND/LM today (Dr Terra Sowinski) and was super stoked about hiring her as a Women's Care Provider and future Midwife. Unfortunately I later found out after confirming coverage with our new insurance provider that they only cover home births with a CNM and do not recognize Naturopaths as doctors.
I have a 17 month old, and went with a clinic out of Tacoma. My experience with them has completely turned me away from wanting to birth in a hospital or with a "midwife" collective again. After laboring without the CNM on call's presence for much of the time, and having the nurse yelling at me, I ended up on my back, with a doctor pulling him out with forceps! Not happening again.
Are there any CNM in South Kitsap, Gig Harbor, or East Mason county that treats women's health and specifically pregnancy as a NATURAL blessing and not a medical condition? Preferably one who supports home birth? I'd rather have one care provider, and not have to have multiple.
