We are moving to the Richmond area next year and I'm researching (in advance) local options for home birth midwives and birth centers. What are the most popular, reputable, well respected etc options in the area for out-of-hospital births?
Thank you in advance!

Nancy Giglio is the most well-known and well-respected home birth midwife in RVA. She is a CNM and has caught most of my friends' babies who have had home births, and they all rave about her. I am 5 weeks pregnant and if all goes well, she will catch mine too! Her website is richmondbirthservices.com. I'm not aware of any other midwives who do homebirths in Richmond.
This is my home birth practice which serves Richmond &
The Birthing Place Birth Center: www.birthingplace.com
Charlottesville's only free-standing birth center
(I also work there!) And it is beautiful and fabulous and we
have a GREAT, supportive, collaborating medical community!
