Hi there -
Where you live will be best determined by where in town his job is.
Do you know the approximate area (even the zip code?) for where he is interviewing?
There are good pockets of town and bad pockets. I live in the Lakesite area of Hixson, which is just north of Chattanooga city limits, and love it up here, but it would be impractical to live up here if he were working far into the city.
I used Katie Garrett as my midwife for two of my three pregnancies (one was delivered out of state), and love, love, love her. She works in a pretty mainstream OB/GYN office, and can lean to the mainstream side (I don't think she does homebirths, for instance), but is very open minded. She's a fantastic breastfeeding supporter, as is our pediatrician (who actually CLAPPED for me when I told him we were still breastfeeding after a year.) I do know that there are a couple of midwives who do homebirths in the area, but don't know anything about them.
Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to fire away!
