Hello all, 

 

Boy, I've had a *rough* pregnancy. Up until 4.5 months, I was living with the baby's father around South America and Manhattan... Then he decided he no longer wanted to be a father... so he made me homeless and penniless in NYC (when I refused to late term abort). I didn't know many people in the USA so I freaked out really badly... I was so afraid. I found out my sister was in Ohio (I wasn't close with her and hadn't spoken to her for almost a year prior to this) and I called her up and begged for her help. 

 

She agreed to help me. She was extremely emotionally unstable and just this past week she engaged in physical abuse towards me. She strangled me against my car window (when I wouldn't mirror her yelling) and I called 911... She was carted off to jail until Monday, so I was safe to go to the apartment to go get my belongings. A family down in Asheville (actually Brevard) offered to house me and give me all the emotional support I could possibly need so I gathered my things and am heading down there. 

 

I am 34 weeks pregnant and quite nervous about finding someone to support my laboring. I will most likely be on Medicaid (I was on it in Ohio so I'm hoping it will transfer well). I'm HUGE into natural birth and hopefully water birth. 

 

So, what I'm asking of you guys is:

 

1. Do you know of the hospitals or birth centres in/near Asheville or Brevard? What are the reviews?

 

2. Do you know any doulas who might be available for this unique situation? 

 

Please let me know any details... I'm in a huge need right now!

 

Rose.

Hello Anya - it sounds like your ready for some much needed rest and relaxing in the last half of your pregnancy!  First of all, you can't get medicaid transferred from state to state.  You will have to re-apply in your county.  If you're in Brevard, I believe your closest hospital will be in Hendersonville, and that is Pardee.  The hospital in Asheville is Mission, and both hospitals have good choices for midwives that can deliver there, and have a fairly good reputation for supporting natural birth ( I believe Pardee is supposed to be more supportive than Mission).

 

That said, I have only had home-birth here, not hospital birth, so I am not an expert.  You should join this yahoo group:

groups.yahoo.com/group/AshevilleMamas

 

A very knowledgeable bunch of natural-living women!  They can certainly give more advice on particular midwifery practices.  Best of luck to you!!
