Just found out I'm unexpectedly expecting

Anyone know of any awesome, hands-off homebirth midwives in the Philly/Southern NJ area? We are currently in Bucks County PA, but will be moving to Camden or Burlington County, NJ by the end of the pregnancy, most likely, so recommendations from both areas are welcome. My last birth ended as a homebirth transfer so I know of a few -- but my main midwife was in Baltimore and it was a lot of travel, and while I would love to use her again, I don't want to do that to her or us

I would love to hear your best recommendations/stories!

full time, single, slightly soggy WOHM to Juliet (12.31.2004 @ 36w5d) and Willow & Adam (2.22.2007 @ 39w5d, HBAC transfer) and... expecting my little womb warrior Eowyn Susanne in September

There is Christy Santoro, CPM also. It's my understanding that risingmoon is doing very few birth in NJ anymore and referrs them to Christy.
