Does anyone have any recommendations for a utah homebirth midwife? I will likely be living in Park City (or potentialy SLC) so Utah Valley based midwives probably won't work.<br><br>
also, while on the subject, any Utah doula recommendations?<br><br>
thanks!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Heather was my midwife too and she's wonderful. I can PM you a list of names and phone numbers of midwives who will go to Park City.<br><br>
As far as doulas you can check out <a href="http://www.utahdoulas.org" target="_blank">www.utahdoulas.org</a> or go to the contact page at <a href="http://www.utahbirth.net" target="_blank">www.utahbirth.net</a> to get some referrals for the area.

I had a lovely midwife for my three homebirths in Salt Lake. Her name is Raeann Peck. Very sweet, earthy lady! She helped me to see what birth was really about.<br><br>
As for Heather, if I am correct, she actually assisted Raeann at the birth of one of my kids. If she is the same lady, she is awesome!<br><br>
Both are very gentle and softspoken.<br><br>
I remember with my first homebirth I was coming back to bed after a going to pee. I was hit with a huge contraction and squatted at the end of my bed to get through it. All of a sudden my body was pushing. I could do nothing to stop it, just had to ride it out. Instead of being yelled at like in the hospital, I was told I was doing wonderful!<br><br>
In the midst of it all, I decided I was not moving any further and nothing could make me move. So instead of being forced to move (as one would be in the hospital) Raeann adapted and I delivered my daughter on the floor in my room.<br><br>
Both women were great about my rather unconventional birthing and laboring places. With my son I was on my hands and knees on my stairs. LOL I did move to bith him though.<br><br>
Fantastic ladies that I would trust my life with as well as my childs.<br><br>
