Hi Madison area mamas,<br>
I'm looking for feedback about Edie Wells. If you'd like, a PM would be more than okay rather than discussing here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I am birthing at home with Ingrid, whom I love, but she is going out of town next week (leaving Wed morning and coming back Thurs evening) She will be in Chicago which is about a 3 hour drive. I will be 37w5d-ish, so the chances aren't THAT great that I'll have the baby that day but you never know. I also don't anticipate a labor shorter than 3 hours, since my last was 36 hours, but again... we can't predict these things!<br><br>
She has asked Edie to back her up until she can make it back to Madison in the event that I deliver. I don't know Edie at all and would like to get a feel for what she's like, personality wise, etc. or if there is anything I should know beforehand. Also, does anyone know how far of a drive she is from Madison? (we're on the East side)<br><br>
I'm trying to be as accepting of this as possible, but must admit there is a bit of anxiety in me tonight (having just found this out about 2 hours ago) so I guess I just need reassurance that she's as great as I think she is if she is the one who Ingrid would choose as backup.<br><br>
Thanks in advance for your help!

Well Im pretty limited as to how much I can tell you, seeing as I only PLAN on using her as soon as I am pregnant (could be now?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> )<br>
I have spoken to her on the phone and through emails and I LOVE her. I have also had a few others who found out I was going to use her tell me that that they loved her as well.<br>
Also, she is just outside of Beloit, which to the east side might be about an hour?
