What is your midwives name? I am a doula and childbirth educator (hypnobabies). I'd love to talk to her to get a feel for her birth philosophy. Then, I'd love to give her personal recommendations.
Let me know

Thanks Mandy. She wants to get her own site, but I was hoping to help her get her name on any other existing sites as well. I'll look around and see what I can find :)

when I got pregnant I just googled midwives in Utah and usually they would have their own website!

My midwife here in Utah wants to get her info out on the internet and has asked me to help. Do you ladies have any suggestions of websites where she should list her contact info? Where do you look online if you're looking for a home birth midwife?

I found out about the hearing screening law the hard way. My first home birth was in July, and I received a somewhat nasty letter from the state in September telling me to get him screened ASAP or face possible fines. Fortunately, the screening was free at the school district (Nebo School District). I didn't mind getting him screened, but the way the state acted as if I were a negligent parent really bothered me. They said my midwife should have given me a pamphlet about it, but my midwife had missed the annual conference this year due to a birth and hadn't received any information on it herself. My other kids were born in the hospital and had the screening done there. The letter the state sent me included a list of places to go for it.

Did you know it is required by law to have your baby's hearing screened?
It's done automatically if the baby is born at the hospital, but the vast
majority of homeborn babies are never screened because 1) parents may not
know it is required, 2) parents may not know how to get a screening, 3) it's
expensive and inconvenient. Think you can tell if your baby can hear?
That's a common misconception. Just because your baby responds to noises
does not mean there isn't a serious hearing deficit. Without screening,
problems are often not discovered until the child is 2 or 3 years old, long
after language acquisition should be well established but is instead
crippled. Detecting the problem early can make a huge difference in your
child's ability to function, and in treatments that may be available to

BetterBirth is now doing hearing screenings for babies for just $15 in both
Orem and Salt Lake. If you'd like to have your baby screened, please call
our office at 801 225-5668 and speak to Carrie Ann to schedule.
