I recently moved to Southern Alabama (Dothan/Wiregrass area) and am STUCK!


I am 29 weeks pregnant and have my heart absolutely SET on a water birth with a midwife. I didn't know that midwifery is illegal in Alabama until I got here.

I'm looking for one of two things:

Either a midwife who is willing to come to my home to do a water birth... it's not illegal on the Military Post!!!

Or, a midwife in Northern Florida somewhere (Tallahassee or Pensacola are kynda close) who has a birthing center so I can drive to her for the delivery.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I feel lost and helpless.

Thank you!

Sorry, I wish I knew. If you hear anything, please post back.

Look up Gentle Birth Options in Niceville, FL. Cindi Gosa Denbow is the midwife there, she attended my friend's birth in Panama City. My friend was very pleased with her!

ETA: We're military as well. I believe Tricare covered most, but not all, of the cost.

Not sure if it is too late or not, but I would contact Vicki Taylor, LM in Pensacola as well.
