Hi Geraldine! Certified Professional Midwives can be hard to track down in Missouri since until last year they were not legal. They are now legal, but word of mouth is still the best way to find one! :) A great way to locate a midwife is to contact Friends of Missouri Midwives- . Springfield has a great FoMM group that meets monthly on the third Monday of the month- join the yahoo group for more info- . If you go to a meeting you can meet lots of homebirth moms and there are usually some midwives there as well. :)
I've had friends who used the local nurse midwife, and loved her, but she books up quickly. I used a CPM and loved both of my homebirths. She isn't taking clients right now, though.
Feel free to message me if you have questions! :)

hello everyone,
I recently moved to the city of Springfield MO and i'm 5 months pregnant! I already have had a home birth with my first baby it was awesome and i would not change that for anything. the problem is that i dont know any one here that have had a home birth that can recommend midwives. i know there is only one here that is a nurse midwife but i just wanted to hear from anyone that can give me some more information. thank you very much!
