First, congratulations and many blessings for your journey! How about homebirth?! As mentioned, the Charleston Birth PLace might be a great option for you as well. Ditto what Mel has said about the other practices.
Well, my brain isn't on full function right now, so I'll try to remember to come back when my memory allows! If I remember correctly, I don't think there are any classical homeopaths here. There are several chiros/other holistic health practitioners that have a great deal of knowledge in homeopathy. Dr Peter Kfoury (chiro internist) is one though his wait list is extreme. Dr Richard Stamegna & Dr Bruce Gwinnup also (I think...as I said my memory is failing me) I...
For midwives: http://www.scdhec.net/health/licen/hrlicmw.htm Click on the PDF for a listing. They used to have a website for the state LM's but it's not up anymore, I'll see if I can find a new one. For doulas: www.charlestondoulas.com Good luck and blessings!
If you search here in the tribe, you'll find several other threads on moving to Charleston. When I have more time, I can come back and give you more info.' Quickly, though, HBAC is not "allowed" in the regs for Licensed midwives, so that would mean either UC or finding another midwife from elsewhere. There are a few providers who attend VBAC's. (E Cooper Womens Ctr, Ashley RIver OB, Creekside WOmen's). If you go this route, I wuld highly suggest meeting the docs...
For a ped, there is Jill Aiken of Sandlapper Peds in Mt Pleasant or more specifically, her Nurse Practitioner, Mary Jo. Also, Martine Hutton on James Island. If you'd like a family doc, check out Craig Koniver in North charleston of Primary Plus. http://www.primary-plus.com/ Good luck!

Yes to above...East Cooper Women's Center attends VBAC's as does Ashley River OB and Creekside OB in Charleston (St Francis hospital). In addition, Lowcountry WOmen's Services in North Charleston has attended VBAC's but I think I've heard that may no longer be the case. But things change around here, so things may be quite different in a couple of years.

But we will also be traveling w/ my in-laws & it would be nice to stay in a 2 bedroom suite or rent a condo. There's a Residence Inn across the Ashley River bridge off US 17. Would that be too far away from downtown & everything else to make it worth...
There are many wonderful places to choose from! One of my favorites (where we stayed the night of our wedding as well as for the millenium) is Planter's Inn (http://www.plantersinn.com/). Not a B&B but stunning, nonetheless. Some others I recommend: http://www.phoebepemberhouse.com/ & http://www.pinckneyinn.com/ One restaurant I HIGHLY recommend is Pane e Vino. It's small, intimate, has great service, and the food is AMAZING. They're definitely a locals...
copied from tribes: I'm a doula in the Charleston area. I would suggest getting involved in our professional organizaion, www.charlestondoulas.com, for starters. We do alot of community events where you can begin to get your name out. It's also a great chance to meet most of the doulas in there and pick their brains. Honestly, you just have to get out there. Go to LLL meetings, meet yoga teachers, etc. Make business cards (you can do them cheaply at home) and hit up...
