So, my previous midwives and I mutually decided that we were not a good fit for each other and I am looking for a new care provider for this pregnancy due to some supposed health issues (that might make me not a great homebirth candidate---trying to get a second opinion on this) and some personalities that just didn't mesh with DH and I.

 

I'm looking into Loudon Community Midwives as well as some of the CPM's in NOVA, but we live in Woodbridge and it seems that Fredricksburg is closer to us than many parts of Northern Viriginia.   Does anyone know of any midwives or OB's that are natural childbirth friendly in Fredricksburg?

 

I had a fairly traumatic high intervention birth with DS and I am really looking to avoid a repeat of that this time around.

 

TIA

Anyone have a recommendation for a midwife in this area?

I'm probably too late, but Peggy Franklin and Kim Pekin at NOVA birth center are fantastic, and I think they do home births in Woodbridge.  They attended both of my home births, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody.  I know they've done lots of VBACs and cared for women with gestational diabetes.

 

I relocated from the Fredericksburg area last year, and all my friends there hired northern Virginia midwives.  BirthCare, out of Alexandria, is another popular option, but I have no experience with them.
