As for a list of practitioners, I know that has one, though I'm not sure how complete it is....there is another, as well...perhaps one of the mich. midwives can chime in w/the name of the list? As far as the law, I'm not sure. I think it may depend on how well your sugar is controlled, as to whether or not you'll find a practitoner to take you.

I hope with all of my heart that you find a midwife. I have SEEN as a doula the "care" type I moms get, and I wouldn't wish it on anybody... Certainly, if you are not able to find a midwife, PLEASE consider getting a doula. Birth Network also has a list, though I KNOW it's not complete. Having a doula will definately give you a leg up on having a midwifery model of care type of labor and birth, if you MUST have an OB for your primary care.

Are you talking homebirth or hospital based midwives?
Not sure if you will find a homebirth midwife if you're insulin dependent, but you should at least be able to find a CNM to co-manage your care in a hospital birth. It certainly wouldn't hurt to call some homebirth and hospital midwives and ask.
You can find listings at
What area are you in?
