Just found out that we are expecting in early December. I have always wanted to have a natural home waterbirth. We live in Fort McMurray and from what I am finding out, there are NO midwives here at all! The closest we have would be to drive 5 hours to give birth in Edmonton. That worries me a little, what if my husband couldn't get there in time...its a horrible highway to drive on...etc. So many variable.

Does anyone know any information about natural birth options in Fort Mcmurray, Alberta. I am hoping to find a midwife who can assist, but I don't think it's likely. I have even considered an unassisted birth. However, seeing as this is my first baby I am a little nervous about doing it alone! I don't know what to expect.

Any information or ideas would be super helpful! Also recommendations for midwives in Edmonton, AB or surrounding areas would be great.

Hi there! My cousin just moved there as well and found a midwife, called her today and got an appointment for tomorrow! As soon as I get her name I'll be back here to post it!
