Hi everyone! I am new to this website/these forums. I skimmed through a lot of topics and didn't really see anything for my area, so I thought I'd post. I live in Barnegat, NJ (10 minutes west of Long Beach Island). My boyfriend and I would like to have a Spring baby next year (ideally, we would like to conceive in appx 8 weeks) and we want a homebirth, so I am on the hunt for a CPM. If we conceive, this would be our first. I've looked online and found four CPM's: Linda McHale in Lakewood, NJ, Megan Kirsch in Matawan, NJ, Linda Perry in Caldwell, NJ, and Jessica Lawlor in Sussex, NJ. Unfortunately I think the last two may be a little too far. I saw Jessica's website and instantly fell in love with her, she sounds absolutely awesome, but she is about 2.5 hours away from me. :( The closest would be Linda McHale or Megan Kirsch, so I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them...?
Linda McHale has years and years of experience however, I have heard that she is doing fewer births this year. Dina Auriccio is a CPM who has worked with Linda McHale and has a practice in central NJ and also in Ocean Grove I believe. There are a few midwives in and around Philly if that is close enough to you. Janet Capetta is a newly licensed CPM in south NJ.
