Yes...there is someone else in Barnardsville/Bakersville area that I considered at first. She is a well known midwife (written many articles in midwifery today) who lives around 30-40 minutes away and she is middle aged, short-gray hair. She also has a load of herbal, oil and homeopathic formulas that she's created that she sells and uses in her practice. I think she is somewhat of a legend as she is the only midwife that is legally allowed to attend homebirths in the state of NC and has been a midwife since 1958. She must be who you're talking about! I have to interview with her first to see if she'll even take me since I'm out of her county, but I'll give it a try!
I so appreciate all the guidance you provide! It's funny...my gut told me to go with this lady in the beginning, but I listened to someone who made a negative comment about her and decided to go more local.
