Well the title says most. DF and I will be getting married in July and I JUST found out I am pregnant! I will be moving to the Jacksonville area in July (possibly Camp LeJeune, possibly out in one of the cities) and really am hoping there are some mamas around there that can help me find good, supportive medical care.

I really want a midwife... with my hearts set on a homebirth or a birthcenter birth (I know the closest stand alone one is Chapel Hill or abouts, but I do not mind one that is part of a hospital with more relaxed settings)

Any info you have is appreciated!

There is a WONDERFUL homebirth midwife in Hampstead who is a CNM, so she can take insurance. Olivia Marshburn... omarshburn@bellsouth.net Hope that helps!

Thank you, I have sent her a message to see if my situation is not too odd and she is not already booked

hehe

and indeed she was not, plus she is willing to take on my odd situation and get to know me through email/phone as much as we can before I move out.

Awesome! Have you met her yet? I think she's Ina May's long lost sister. Hope you love her as much as we do! (she's my mw for this pregnancy as well!)
