Before you hire a midwife, be sure to interview several carefully. Take your time reviewing their history, call up their references, have a list of questions handy, research the legal issues in your state and ask the midwife for proof of her certification.
Preparing for Baby
I need to write a letter to my insurance company explaining why I need a midwife that is closer to me than an hour away. I don't have a car. This is my second pregnancy and the first one was fast.
Can you give me some more reasons why it would be better to have a midwife near me?
Well I found out today that my "best friend" Is pregnant.
Now Im not quite sure how too handle this. I am not going too leave her side, but where do I go from here?? I mean I know that I am goning too man up and help her out with anything I can do for her. I am just nervous. With me leaving for deployment and all it's going too make things so much tougher for the both of us. Anyone have any advice??
So I am happy otherwise ^_^

I am smart and successful, as a personal trainer. I have my own home a paid for vehicle, and 3 beautiful children,Alicia,15 India, 10, and Gavin 6. They are wonderful beautiful children. But here I sit, alone and pregnant again, you may ask, what anidiot how could she let this happen,truth is I wonder that myself. When I met A I thought I had finally met my soul mate.
