Looking for midwives who homebirth in Raleigh/Cary area

Hi am due in April 2015 and I am on the hunt for a licensed midwife who assist in home birth. I know about the chapel hill birthing center but I am holding out for a home water birth. I also know about the monarch midwife group in Fayetteville but all visits are at the actual facility which is over an hour away!

Contact Julie McBurney for info. She is a wonderful doula who services the triangle area and I *think* she had a homebirth. I think current regulations make it nearly impossible to have one, but if something is possible, she will know.

Please let me know if you manage to, I'm in that area as well and would like homebirth as an option next time.


this is just a moment in time, step aside and let it happen

Mariap83, I'm in the same boat as you and have been able to find one home birth midwife thus far. Her name is Nancy Harman at Birthwise. The closest office to you would be Pittsboro though and I believe most visits are done in office. Hope it helps some since I realize how difficult it is to find this sort of info. If anyone has any additional recommendations, including direct entry midwives (the "illegal" kind in this backwards state), please share. I'd love to hear of additional options.

I'm 31 weeks and using Nancy Harman also. She is a little hard to get in touch with and it is hard for me to travel to the prenatals because of the distance (I'm in Winston-Salem), but I'm very grateful to have a legal option. I'm sure there are CPMs in that area who deliver "underground", but they might be hard to find.

Does birthwise have an actual website? I'm only finding a facebook page.
