I've heard good things about Jackie Griggs. I don't have any personal experience with her though.
You can also check here to find midwives.
I gave birth with the midwives at the women's specialist's of Houston and they were pretty awesome.
Good luck and congratulations!
Thank you. Unfortunately Jackie Griggs is not in our network and we cannot afford paying for a birth, no matter how much financial help we would get from the birth center. A birth with an OBGYM would cost me around 25 bucks, that's it. I think I have found a good OBGYN, will go and get a referral tomorrow.
I'm on Tricare, and I never could find an in-network midwife, other than the UTMB midwives. Nativiti and Reunion both said they'd never had much luck getting paid. I ended up paying out of pocket for my last two births.

I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant and have been going to see Debra Sharp CNM since 1/5/2012, at the UTMB Pasadena Maternity Clinic. They're great there and so is she. She is very friendly and great at answering all of my questions. They have a really great community of doctors, nurses, and midways at the Pasadena clinic. I drive there all the way from Humble, sometimes twice a week. They are very thorough and take great care of you. I am very pleased with Debra Sharp, I am a bit of a hypochondriac and she does a great job at putting my mind at ease. This is my first pregnancy so I am very scared and nervous, she is very professional and I always leave feeling happy, relaxed and safe. Everyone who works at this office is fantastic at what they do. I would recommend Sharp, and the clinic to any pregnant woman.
Hope this helps in your search, and congratulations!!!
I used sandra hurtado at texas woman's. the csection rates are high their but dr. hurtado performs vbac and does everything in her power to let you have a natural hospital birth. she asked me if i wanted pain meds on my way to the hospital, said no and was never asked again.
For a midwife though, she's not in Houston, but Nanci Stanely delivered my sisters kid and she is very good. Tricare told me that I would pay out of pocket and then get reimbursed for 80% of it.
If you are going with an OB and want to stay on the east side, check out Dr. Larry Milner at Bayshore Hospital in Pasadena. He is a bout "homebirth in a hospital" as you are going to get. I have worked with him in the capacity of a doula, midwife and as a patient of his and he is wonderful. Good luck!
