Re: Anyone on Kitsap Peninsula?

Peggy Thurston is in Poulsbo and I have heard she's quite good. She's actually a instructor at Seattle midwifery school as well. I met her once and she wasn't quite what I was looking for (special issues) and I do know of another midwife in the Olalla/PT Orchard area that would likely travel to you (30+ years experience). I am in Gig Harbor

Peggy Thruston is the closest to me but I have met her and didn't click. I did just email Mifawnwy (Mif) Decker Carlson LM and it says she's in Ollala so maybe a connection there. Thanks for the ideas!

You probably have already seen this but thought I'd give it a shot:

Re: Anyone on Kitsap Peninsula?

I'm no help because I have to have c-sections but I wanted to comments because I live in the PNW. Where exactly are you at?

Mif is wonderful! That was who I was going to recommend but I wasn't sure if she was too far for you. She was my midwife for my last baby and I have nothing but great things to say about her. A good friend is my midwife this time but Mif is our backup and may attend the birth as well . I bet you will love her!

We're in Poulsbo. its about an hour from the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

I Finally got a response from one, it was Mif. She said she DOES service my area. yay, now I have a choice!!!

mamawillow- thanks again for that link. It's really going to help me out. I already learned about a showing of Born in the USA at my library tomorrow so I'm going for sure!
