I am looking for a home birth midwife that either will do prenatal visits in my home or has an office that is close to the Arcadia area (44th & Indian School). Does anyone have any suggestions?
There is a Doctors office at 32nd Street and Campbell:
Camelback Women's Health & Aesthetics?
I had a homebirth, but my midwife is in Gilbert.
I know there are several midwives in the area you are looking. I can't personally recommend one, but Google is a good place to start. Call them, set up an interview, and see who you like!
Can you recommend any doulas? I'm in the Chandler area... Googling hasn't been particularly helpful so far.
I'm having a home birth and I love my midwife. Her office is off Thomas/51hwy so not far from Arcadia area. I drive there even though I live in and my birth will take place at my home in Chandler. I switched from my obgyn to her after doing hospital tours and realizing that a hospital just wasn't the route for me. Not to mention I didn't feel like I was getting the personalized attention I desired. Mary blocks out up to 2hours for her appointments and she really focuses on education, answering questions and making sure you have a really good understanding of your body and your baby. She just opened up a birth center in phoenix (same location as office) for those who don't want to be in a hospital but don't want to be at home either. Here personal website is www.marythemidwife.com. The birth center website is www.blossombirthcenter.com.
As for Doulas in the Chandler area. I live in Chandler and I hired a doula to attend my home birth that also lives in Chandler. I interviewed a few and she was by far my favorite. She is also a certified lactation specialist. Her website is http://www.chysdoulacare.com/.
Thanks for the helpful info!
