I am located in Tallahassee, Florida, about two hours away.  Last year I went up and gave a talk on FAM/NFP to a mom's group that was located at the AF base.  They were pretty crunchy, I thought anyway.  I also met some doulas there and a local CNM.  They are there, you just have to look for them!
In addition to LindseyEM's post if you come east to Tallahassee there is The Birth Cottage 260 East 6th Avenue Tallahassee, Florida 32303 (850) 244-BABY www.thebirthcottage.com Diana Janopaul, LM Where the Heart is Midwifery (850) 556-7491 Heartmidwifery@yahoo.com www.wheretheheartismidwifery.com   Jill Welch, LM Blessed Be Midwifery P.O.

This is my contact/interview list for that area for VBAC/HBAC (I am the chapter leader of ICAN of Tallahassee, seems like we are one of the closest ICAN groups): Pensacola Area List of Potential VBAC Care Providers CAVEAT: This is an interview list only. Please interview these care providers to determine if they will be supportive of you in your plans to have a Vaginal Birth after Cesarean.

These are the midwives that I know of in that area, not sure if they take medicaid or not.  I am pretty sure that Vicki used to and may still.  She seems very hands off to me in regards to birth (as long as all is going well):   Gentle Birth Options 296 Bayshore Drive Niceville, FL 32578 (850) 279-6778 info@gentlebirthoptions.com http://www.gentlebirthoptions.com/ Vicki Taylor, LM, CPM Mama’s Cradle Pensacola,...
I am the ICAN of Tallahassee chapter leader, her closest big city would be Pensacola.  There is a Milton Memorial Birthing Center http://miltonmemorialbirthingcenter.com/index.html and they may have good information for her but the person I would really contact in the area is Vicki Taylor with Mama's Cradle.  She is a homebirth midwife who is very VBAC supportive (but her backup doctor moved away and I am not sure if she has a VBAC supportive replacement for...
This is a birth center in Delray (just to the north of Boca Raton) that is staffed by Licensed Midwives (not CNMs) but I would check with them to see what their recommendations for CNM's would be in the area.  http://www.palmsbirthhouse.com/   This is the website of my former doula, Lorie McCoy: http://amazingbirthsandbeyond.com/ She has a list of resources on there that include CNM's.  She is also affiliated with the Palms Birth House.
Dr. Denise Punger is up in St. Lucie County if you are willing to travel (I was living in WPB when I went to see her to fix my DD's tongue tie).   www.twofloridadocs.com   She might also know of doctors in your area (we moved away in 2007).
Welcome back to Tally.  We use Dr. Whit Oliver as our family doctor.  I like him ok, but he isn't as natural as Ness.    I have a friend who likes Wilson Family medicine: http://www.wilsonfamilymedicine.com/ I know she chose them because they were probreastfeeding.   We have an attachment parenting facebook group, you might be able to get some more recommendations there.
I just did a training with Full Circle Encapsulation this past weekend and it looks like she has a training coming up in Manhattan in April and also does online or skype trainings I believe. http://fullcircleplacenta.homestead.com/PhysicalTrainingsCertification.html   I know that encapsulation specialists are charging around $150 in my area, and the trainer said her packages start out around $175.   Although I just saw that this is an old thread (I haven't been...
I live in Tallahassee but one of my friends moved to the Augusta area and she told me that they have birth network meetings on a regular basis, including meet the doula meetings.  I also know that area is starting up a new ICAN group as well. I would guess that this is the birth network: http://www.augustabirthnetwork.org/
