I recently moved to STL and I need to find a midwife.<br><br>
My first (and only) child was delivered in a hopsital in VA by a midwife. I am looking for the same here. Do midwives deliver in hospitals in MO? I have been trying to research it online and I a bit confused.<br><br>
If anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful.<br><br>
Also, any recommendations on an OB/GYN that does natural births would be helpful too.<br><br>
Thanks so much!

As far as I know, there is not a single hospital in the St. Louis area that employs a single midwife.<br><br>
I don't have a lot of experience with local hospitals/OBs, and I only know of one midwife in the area (she only does homebirths, though): <a href="http://www.expectantmothersguide.com/profiles/Common-Ground-Midwifery-Services/index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.expectantmothersguide.com...ices/index.htm</a><br><br>
HTH, and welcome to the area!

there are two CNM's on the Illinois side of the river that attend deliveries at St Elizabeth's hospital, Sylvia Obernufferman and Susan Massey.<br><br>
But there are no midwives doing hospital deliveries on the St Louis side of the river.

Thanks for the replies and the help.<br><br>
I am so surprised that there are not midwives in hospitals or many midwives at all in MO.<br><br>
I am definitely will check out the the midwives suggested.<br><br>
Thanks so much!

Has anyone worked with or known someone that has worked with Dana Albillo? I'm very excited about using her, as she is open to vbac patients and to coming two hours out on the Missouri side ( I live in Sullivan, btw, so it's been especially hard finding someone that leans toward natural/vbac care.
