I am moving to the Lehigh Valley and am currently 8 weeks pregnant. Very concerned about the availability of nurse midwives and not having to fight! I understand that LV Hospital has kicked out all their midwives and the Birth Center does not allow VBACs. HELP, I didn't need a c-section the first time and let myself get pressure into one. Does anyone know of a midwife group in the Lehigh Valley or a hospital that uses the midwifery model?

I can potentially help you with this if you're still looking for someone.

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Moving state to state has been rough. I am interviewing a midwife next week. Are you a home birth midwife?

I'm not but I had a successful VBAC in Allentown. I'd be happy to share my experience with you. As far as I know there is only one midwife group around here and they only do home births which wasn't something I was comfortable with although I've heard they're quite good. If you'd like to hear more let me know and I'll private message you.
