I was raised in a. Family that was very supportive of home birth. My mother was assistant an underground midwife in Illinois in the 70s and 80s. Illinois doesn’t recognise certified professional midwives/ direct entry,
LM and CMs. Practicing medicine without license, it’s a felony to deliver babies
My first birth experience -i was 21 and pregnant and living a very natural lifestyle. Couldn’t find a midwife. I am going to labor at my mothers house and go to the hospital when
I didn’t make it to the hospital, the paramedics were called and i pushed her out and had my first home birth. I was studying culinary, and decided to be a midwife, it became my purpose and calling, taught Lamaze in the basement, did breastfeeding consulting.
My older sister wanted a doula to support her in labor, and that was twenty years in September. I had to do it. I assisted her and started taking classes and his is when CPM became a credential, taking classes from an underground midwife

My aunt was Nando’s first client and she was talking about it and my husband was looking around. We thought the hospital did a pool birth and the hospital wouldn’t do it
Second child 20 months. It wa S completely different experience, in our living room, incense, lighting was dim, music in the background, didn’t always have doctors coming in and getting poked, lay in your own bed and shower in your own shower. My husband too-my husband would talk me out of a hospital

Delivered first baby at home with Nandi,
I felt fine, it wasn’t over the top painful. It was awesome. I am so excited to do it again. At first i went to the OB that my mom had with me, and the vibes he wa shoving off, sending weird vibes to my boyfriend. My parents had a friend who gave birth to her kids at home, and then looked around to people who would take my insurance. I have Medicaid-
77% of midwife clientele is Medicaid
My parents were a little unsure about it. My mom had never even thought it was a real possibility
Kane light, 23 from here, second i like the home birth process, all the women in My family had home birth. -at first i was worried about it, bc all the women in my family went to hospital
It was a house full of people, and it will be again. Ten people were there- there was music and affirmations on the walls, candles, salt lamp, foam, had a pool
Was 41 and 5 days
Having a boy, a very special baby. He is the only boy! Wow, only king
Nandi: she found me and did his as a teen. When i got pregnant and did this she was 17. My dad always raised me-there is always multimple ways to do everything, so do your research And do what it’s

Going in for routine prenatal and Nandi sensed something was wrong, high blood pressure, decreased Ferial movement
I hadn’t really felt right for a week or two. I am so grateful for your care, and that you identified these things

My midwife at hospital wasn’t interested in my husband’s opinions and my mom is a doula and she talked it up.’i decided one day i am going to do this, and my husband and let him know and he was worried.
I called Jennie west and they recommended Tiffany and Nandi
