UK midwife visiting Cape

hi everyone,

i am a homebirth midwife in the UK and i am going on vacation to Cape Cod this september.....

i was wondering whether there was a midwife in the area who i could shadow for a day, to see how midwifery (specifically homebirth midwifery) is different to where we know, what obstacles you the system works for you (or not), hands off - hands on, what routine checks (if any) do you do....
just to get a little taster of homebirth culture in the US!

I'm a homewaterbirthing, babywearing, cosleeping, noncircing, nonvaxing mom of gabriel, who is three, married and will be on vacation with ds ,dh , mother in law and brother in law!

i will be in osterville.

anyone interested?

My HB MW lets people shadow her or her partners frequently.

Her name is Sue Smith and she isn't exactly on the Cape but could lead you in the right direction. I would really encourage you to travel to her, however. She is one of the area's most experienced and is who others call for breech and twin HB's.
Hi Debs,

I cover the Cape, you can pm me...I would be fun to meet!

Here is a wee bit about my practice.

If you are here on the 11th you could even come to a Massachusetts Midwifery Alliance meeting if you were interested.

September is a great time to come to the Cape! Paige
