Salut!<br>
I'm only a couple of weeks pregnant and new to Paris. I'd like as natural birth as possible - if all goes well, a home birth. But it seems that I have to find an independant midwife as home births aren't normal here.<br><br>
Can any of you recommend such a midwife or let me know how I can find one?<br><br>
And if there are problems, and I end up in a hospital, are there any public hospitals and OBs you can recommend?<br><br>
Merci in advance!

There are several sage-femmes libérales in the Paris area.<br>
Here is a list:<br><a href="http://perinatalite.chez-alice.fr/repertoire-praticiens.pdf" target="_blank">http://perinatalite.chez-alice.fr/re...praticiens.pdf</a><br><br>

Thank you for those links. I am still a little shocked by how few independent midwives there are in France! The doulas site has some useful tips.
