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.

Threre are actually several other midwives in RIC.  I would personally reccommend Glenda Turner at With Woman Midwifery Care

Nancy Giglio was my midwife in 2009/2010. I do not have enough incredible things to say about her. I had hyperemesis for 9 months and at times I felt she was saving my life and my sanity. She is just absolutely lovely, down to earth, educated, and compassionate. I truly respect and love this woman.
