I have made the desicion to start a homebirth/midwife/wanna be midwife/Doula/wanna be Doula group here in the lower half of WI.
I am in Delavan which is 15-20 minutes(depending on how you drive :LOL) East ish of Janesville and 20 to 25 minutes South of Whitewater.

Upper Wi-ites you are not forgotten, but I know most of you will not be able to attend for obvious distance reasons. But I think there are already groups like this up there.
Lucky you guys :LOL
My goal is to get to know other women who have or want homebirths, be a support for each other and for aspiring midwives to be able to get together and discuss goals, births attended, and creat a little network.

My reasoning for this is that I have searched for a group in the area and have not been able to find one.

I am an aspiring midwife and I feel this is the best way to start.

Anyone intersted please feel free to PM me.

I have no idea when or where this will take place or if anyone is interested but please if you are pm me.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have PMed you too.

I am definitely interested! I think its fate that we connect, my name is Jessica Lynn too
. Anyway, I live in Janesville and I am also an aspiring midwife. I am going the CNM route for now so I am attending school full time. I start RN clinicals in the fall and then I am hoping to someday go to Marquette, since thats my only option. I have been apprenticing a midwife in Rockford for about 3 years and I think that I have found my calling. But, I do not have any children of my own yet. I live with my boyfriend of 4.5 years and we plan on getting married and having kids *someday* (if it were up to me it would be now, but not everyone moves at the same speed as me
). I would like to try to at least finish my bachelors first then probably take a little break from school. It would be so great to start a WI group because I know people involved with birth in Rockford area, but not anyone really near were I live or Madison area would be great too. Anyway, I'll stop for now
, but we have much to discuss!

that's so far away from me (i'm in wausau)
you said something about there being groups up here? I'd love it if you could pass on any info about that, because I'm actually having a hard time even finding a midwife near me! I'm not actually pregnant yet, but we're going to start trying this month, and the closest mw i've found is 1 1/2 hrs. away. This would be an HBAC for me, so I'd really like to connect with some other homebirthy people! I loved my homebirth group when i was pg with ds, but that was when we lived in alaska... I guess janesville isn't THAT far away :LOL
