I was just wondering if anyone might know if a Virginia midwife that would be willing to attend a home birth in Durham NC in September.

NC is an illegal lay-midwife state and the number of midwives that do it anyway is very limited. I want to exercise my right to a home birth, but finding a midwife to attend is slightly difficult.

Thanks in advance.

If you send an email to the Commonwealth Midwives Alliance, there are VA-licensed NC mws on the list who may know of someone.

Have you been to www.nchomebirth.com and submitted a request to be contacted by a midwife?

Do this! My NC homebirth was attended by a MW who's actually certified in VA, but lives and practices in NC. She's not near you, otherwise I'd recommend her w/out reservation!

But nchomebirth.com is the way to find homebirth MWs in NC.
