Well, I went in for my first prenatal today and didn't like the way things went, so I <b><i>don't</i></b> actually have a midwife yet! I'm starting week 21 tomorrow! Ah well...maybe a UC is in my future after all! We are going to AZ for the summer, so maybe there's a great midwife waiting for me there!<br><br>

I found myself with no m/w also after the one who caught my first two babes decided to stop attending births and the next one I liked had a stop date for 9 days before my EDD<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: . It was a little stressful with the limbo of it all, but I had my first appt with the m/w who will catch this time at 24 weeks, and it was worth the wait!<br><br>
I hope you find someone that works for you -- soon, for the peace of mind<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.

Where in AZ are you moving to?<br><br>
The problem in AZ is it will have to be "under the table" because you're technically a VBAC which is illegal in AZ for LMs to attend. Of course there are some willing to attend you anyways, you just have to find them...<br><br>
I think the bulk of LMs are in Phoenix. Def post in the FYT forum to see if you can find some referrals.<br><br>
Or just go UC like you suggested <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Me neither. I was hoping that I would get a call from one of the homebirth midwives in my area, but its been almost 2 weeks and I haven't heard (they're underground here, so I can't contact her myself. I don't even know who she is).<br><br>
I hope that both of us can find midwives and have wonderful homebirths. Good luck.
