Hi neighbor! I'm in Mtn. House. Are you looking for a homebirth midwife? If so, try Lucinda Johnston-Chiszar (http://www.bigvalleymidwives.com). She's in Modesto, but she comes to Tracy. Jessica Johnson does too (she's also in Modesto). I know Beah Haber comes to Mtn. House, but I don't know if she attends births in Tracy (she's in Livermore). Mason Cornelius will do births in Tracy, but generally you have to go to her office for prenatal and postnatal appts (she lives in Dublin, but the office is in Danville).

I strongly suggest that you not use Jessica Johnson. Jessica was my midwife for two weeks. I paid my deposit and was then diagnosed with breast cancer at 11 weeks pregnant. I needed to have an immediate mastectomy and start chemo. This meant I needed to move to So. California with my 3 children to get help from my family. I explained this to Jessica and she agreed to accept payment of half of the deposit and then refund the remainder of the deposit, due to the extenuating circumstances. Months went by and I didn't receive the refund. I called her and she said that because she billed my insurance (and that caused extra work) she was no longer willing to refund half of the deposit. I paid her a $600 deposit. At that time she agreed to bill my insurance. I had one medical visit and several phone calls. She billed the ins. co. $425 and they paid $382. She refused to refund my deposit in the end. She couldn't even legally bill the ins comp for the full $600. If she can treat a pregnant cancer patient this way, she is not trustworthy.
