Hello ladies! I am new to this thread, but I had a question. I am a mother to 3 sons - ages 8, 2, and 19 months. We are planning to start trying for another this year and would like a natural birth, as all my others were hospital induced with epidurals. I have talked to 2 local midwives, Angie Neis and DeEtte Nicholson, and like them a lot but still not dead set on going the homebirth route. Is there a midwife in the East Tennessee/Tri Cities area that you strongly recommend/have used before? Input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm in the Tri-Cities area of East TN as well! I have 3 children & am around 16 weeks with number 4. I had number 3 at home with Karen Moran but she is now retired. I am planning a homebirth with Angie Neis this time & feel really good about it. I know people that have used both Angie & DeEtte & were very happy with them so I would say it's probably just your preference & who you feel more comfortable with. I loved my homebirth & am looking forward to this one in August! Good Luck making your decision.

Thank you so much! I believe I do want to go with Angie when the time comes, as we haven't started trying yet, but right now I am just doing research so I don't have to stress myself out when the time comes. She seems like she shares a lot of my beliefs. I am really excited, it's going to be a completely different experience than the past 3 times!! I am so glad you enjoy her!!
