We're moving from a well-populated area into a very, very, VERY rural area near Burley, Idaho. How do I find a midwife in that area?<br><br>
I'm worried about not being able to find one, though I have time since I'm not due until mid-September.<br><br>
TIA!

Here is a link to Idaho midwives. Thru them you may find someone nearby...<br><a href="http://idahomidwives.net/" target="_blank">http://idahomidwives.net/</a><br>
Hope that helps, and if you haven't found one within a couple months, PM me,cuz I went to the Farm with an Idaho mw and I could hook you up with her.... best regards,Cathi

Post on the Idaho tribe, even though it is very rural, there may be one momma who lives there and knows.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Find out if there is a LLL group in any of the nearby towns and ask the leader. When you move there, look for notices evrywhere you find a notice board, I've found MW's business cards stuck up in little bakeries, etc... I feel your pain, I live in a very rural area as well, I'm pretty up on the town happenings, and I still had to search to get a name of a HB MW. Also search the net, like <a href="http://www.waterbirth.org" target="_blank">www.waterbirth.org</a> they have a listing of MW's, and I was able to find a listing a couple of years ago for one in my rural area. Good luck.

I used to live in Boise & know the midwives from <a href="http://www.treasurevalleymidwives.com/" target="_blank">http://www.treasurevalleymidwives.com/</a> Idaho's such a small state (in terms of population), I bet they'd know if/who serves that area. I bet there's someone from Twin, IF, or Pocatello...<br><br>
Oh, just remembered another website: <a href="http://www.birthpartners.com" target="_blank">www.birthpartners.com</a><br><br>
Good luck!
