Marilee Pinkleton (http://www.tlcbirth.com) is my midwife and arguably the best midwife in the area! She's so fantastic and has some great apprentices/birth assistants---Wendy, Liz and Valerie (LOVE THEM!)! (Wendy and Valerie also teach Bradley!) They also provide doula support for the births they attend, so you wouldn't have to hire a separate one. If you did though, Lori Cooper is amazing! ###-###-#### This is normally her website, but something is wrong with it right now: http://www.transitionsbirthdoulas.com/
Midwives will meet with you before you even get pregnant so you can decide on who to hire. We interviewed three home birth midwives to get a good feel for the different styles and personalities of them--and we made a GREAT choice with Marilee!
LOVE LOVE LOVE me some Business of Being Born! Should be mandatory viewing! :-)
