Hello ladies!

I'm currently pregnant with our 4th, and am looking to find a homebirth midwife in the Charlotte area. Our 3rd baby was born at home in Portland, OR...oh how I miss that place sometimes! Finding a CPM there was as easy as googling!!!

 

If anyone has any resources or information, I would be SO thankful!!

 

Oh, and I've submitted the form at nchomebirth, so perhaps I'll hear from them soon...

K
aren Benfield attends homebirths in that area. She is a licensed CNM. CPM's are not licensed in NC yet. It may happen this summer, though. But using one is still an option. There are a lot of them out there, but because of legal status they are hard to find.


None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.shine.gif

libsmama,

thanks for providing my info to these ladies. I can also be found on Healthprofessionals.com. I used to have a prenatal site in the northern Charlotte area until last early fall. I'm looking at several in a northwest suburban town of Charlotte. I cover a 2 hour radius of Hickory, and all of Charlotte and beyond is well w/in that 2 hours.

 Anyone can PM me or my e-mail is: birthtender00@ yahoo.com

Blessings,

Quick update: Business from you Charlotteland folks is picking up, slightly. I have started, again, looking for some place really reasonable to rent a small office space in the upper North suburban areas, e.g Denver, NC.

 Remember, if you come up to Hickory via Hwy. 16 (which all but about 4 miles) is now a 4 lane Hwy, it takes 50 min to  one hour from Hickory to downtown Charlotte.
