When I had dd, I used a midwife (CNM), and gave birth in a hospital. That experience was fine, but next time I'd like to birth either at home or at Ballard House (birthing center).
Here is a list of some of the midwives in Maine that support homebirth http://www.homestead.com/midwivesofmaine/2.html
I know there are a few more, I did a search on google and there were several pages. The three midwives that attended both my births are listed in this group, they are all Certified Professional Midwives (CPM), and actually one was an intern and has now gotten her own practice
All three are amazing women, and two on the list we actually interviewed prior to our first birth.
I don't know of anyone personally that has birthed at the Ballard house, but I'm on a list for Maine Mama's and I think a few have birthed there that live in the area.
If you want anymore information feel free to email or PM me
