Are there any homebirth CNMs in the Piedmont area that are practicing? I keep getting mixed answers about whether it is legal in this state. I found the Monarch Midwifery website, but Fayetteville is way out of range.

Nope: there are not. There are two @ a Birth Center in Statesville. Last year NC took away the only HB backup doctor in the state. There are HB midwives in SC tho.

There are one or two CNMs who will do Homebirths in AVL but they certainly will not travel for them & they have fairly restrictive criteria, plus they prefer (IMHO) to deliver @ the hospital where they have privledges.

I know things have changed in the last few years and there are fewer options now. About 8 years ago a friend of mine rented a cabin near Asheville for her last month in order to get her homebirth.
