I am not sure if this is the place to post this, but here it goes.<br><br>
My brother is expecting with his girlfriend in mid july.<br>
My problem is this: next week they are going to try switching caregivers and move to my midwives pratice. My concern is that she and my brother met due to mutual addictions to drugs, crystal meth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> Although she told her current CNM that she was clean before she got pregnant, she has admitted that is not true, but that she stopped as soon as she knew. Their relationship is EXTREMLY unstable since they have both cleaned up.<br>
I have a six week pp check up tomorrow and feel like I'd be lying to my MW if I don't warn them, but I don't want to cause a family fight. What do I do ? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help"><br><br><br>

Well, I'd treat it as my own issue instead of the midwife's issue (to be warnned). I would tell her that you are concerned about your brother's girlfriend. That she used to use meth, but hasn't since she found out she was pregnant.<br>
That you know she wants a homebirth/midwife birth, but didn't know if she was still eligible.<br>
That you want to know if your midwife has any ideas about the kind of support you could give to help their relationship and her pregnancy.<br><br>
Then you'll get some useful information and she will get some useful information, but you aren't tattling on anyone.
