Hi ladies! My name is Nikki, DH is Eric, DS is Drake (10 months), and we are expecting another son in April. My last birth was all natural, in a hospital with a CNM. It was a fabulous experience. We have since moved, and the hospitals and OB's here really suck.
REALLY suck. I've always been scared of a homebirth, but in this situation I think I'm more scared of a hospital birth. There is only one midwife around here, she's a CPM that only does homebirths. I have her info, and I'm in the process of filling out all the papers to send back to her. We haven't met her yet.
Two questions about her though: First, how do I find out info about her, other than references she gives me? Second, she does not have any professional liability insurance. Is this normal? I assumed it would be required. She is registered with our state's Dept of Health Control, so she couldn't get any more "official".
I really want to meet her and just love her to pieces, b/c I won't go forward with a homebirth unless I'm really comfortable with her. Thanks ladies for the help and support!
