The Family Maternity Center of the Northern Neck is closing  due to economic difficulties and inadequate insurance reimbursements: http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2011/082011/08292011/646178.

 

The closest hospitals to the Northern Neck are Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, hospitals in Richmond, and hospitals in Tidewater.

 

According to the website for American Association of Birth Centers, there are THREE free-standing birth centers left in Virginia: http://www.birthcenters.org/find-a-birth-center/index.php.

 

A article from 2005 in the Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/27/AR2005082701189.html) has a bigger picture of the options for Northern Neck women.
