Quoting *VuHnEsSaH*:" Oh okay. Well, I'm glad your experience was so positive. I'm going to be moving to Colorado next month & hoping to get in w/ a midwife group. (probably going to MMC first) "


In Northern CO there aren't really any birth centers so most opt for home birth.
Beth Karberg is great and will take CHP+. I did not use her, but a friend of mine had her as her HB midwife and LOVED her.



I used Carol Roedocker who was absolutely amazing. She is an amazing midwife and so gentle with the newborn, so nice too. just in case you want to look them up and bookmark that info. :-) They both serve Northern CO.

Quoting ☮ Phuket:" so this made me cry.... so happy that he came out! that castor oil can be a god send when used right ... [snip!] ... right :) such beautiful pictures!!! CONGRATS MOMMA// oh and BTW you look beautiful after giving birth.. i looked like hell!"



:D Thanks lol. I felt like crap, kinda.



I was never really against castor oil, just wasn't ever too sure about it and knew the chances of it working could be kind of 50/50-ish. Definitely thankful to have had it available! I was starting to lose my mind and get stressed!
