Find the Midwife or Birth Attendant That's Right For You!
Leverage the Network of the Indie Birth Association
While we support freebirth, we believe that every woman that wants a compassionate, knowledgeable and confident birth attendant should have one if she desires. There are some areas of the US and some areas in the world where women do not have many or ANY options. Licensing has made midwifery “exclusive” in many places, with midwives who serve the State and who may not work with certain women.
Women who have had cesareans, or who have breech babies, for example, may suddenly find themselves without a midwife to attend them. And yet other women would like to deliberately choose outside of this “birth as medical” system anyway, and desire a traditional birth attendant or unlicensed midwife because that makes the most sense to them.
In any case, we get emails and calls weekly from women all over the world who would like to have the choice of having a birth attendant. We believe that every woman should have as many options as she can find, and we’re honored to be a part of the “locating” process. We have contacts in many places worldwide and can help you find someone that you connect with (hopefully!) based on the information you provide.
(We also personally attend births worldwide in some situations and are happy to answer your questions about this process as well when you fill out the form below).
We do offer free phone consults on Mondays about any and all birth topics. If you’d like to sign up for a free consult to discuss your options, please follow this link.
We will respond to your email within 24 hours.
