Finding a caregiver

 

Doctor -- Obstetrician-gynecologists and family doctors can perform births at local hospitals.

Doula -- A doula is a knowledgeable birth attendant. She can provide non-medical support. Once a month, Blossom Birth hosts a "Meet the Doulas Night." For more information, visit http://www.blossombirth.org .

Midwife -- Nurse-midwives are trained as nurses and can provide care in hospitals or at home. Licensed midwives are not nurses, but must receive special training. Midwives are available at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City and at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View. To search for local midwives, visit: http://www.medbd.ca.gov/allied/midwives.html .

For the record, doctors do not "perform births"---mothers and babies do! Perhaps this is the problem---someone is taking the wrong role in hospital birthing today! love,c
