I googled "homebirth midwives columbus, georgia" and several came up.  You may also want to post this question in the tribal area for Georgia.  You can find your tribe by going to the Welcome to Motheringdotcommunity forum.  Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I searched under "homebirth midwives columbus, georgia" as suggested and i didn't find anything about midwives here that attend home births. I did come across a site, Citizens for Midwifery (http://cfmidwifery.org/states/states.aspx?ST=GA), that stated: "While quite a few certified nurse midwives practice in Georgia, most are in hospital settings and none attend home births. There is one free-standing birth center, which is staffed by CNMs." This is confusing to me since i've come across websites out of Atlanta & Savannah that show midwives who attend homebirths. But as suggested, i will also post in the other forum. Thanks

Here is an older thread on here that may be useful even thought it is from 2010.  It has newer updates too.  Good luck!

Would any of the Atlanta midwives travel to Columbus? I've heard wonderful things about Brenda Parrish http://www.traditionalbirthservices.com/

 

I'm not sure if she travels to Columbus, but my friend/doula apprenticed with her for about a year before she moved to Atlanta.

I would call/email Natalie Whitworth. Here is a link to her website: http://southeasternmidwifery.com/Southeastern_Midwifery/Welcome.html

 

If she is already booked for your due date, you could also try Carleen Allen. (both are CNM's)

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Good luck in your search!
