I had a water birth at Women's Birth and Wellness Center, Chapel Hill NC. I know it's far from you, but I live just as far away and somehow everything worked out. If you can imagine yourself driving 1.5 hours each way, that is!
I'm confused about your question. The birth center suggestion is a good one. If you are looking for a homebirth midwife, I think you can find one if you look hard enough. I would suggest either the homebirth meet up in Greenville or finding some natural parenting groups in the Raleigh area.
