CPMs are not licensed in MD and CNMs need an OB back-up which is very hard to come by for homebirths. There is a Baltimore Birth Circle meeting on the 16th, you will likely find lots of like minded...

Welcome to Maryland.  Unfortunately you're not going to find many options for a homebirth in MD (I don't know of any midwives who are licensed to practice in MD who travel that far west).  You may...

There are also hotels nearby the hospital if you want your own space vs a friend's house.  Sounds like you have a good plan in place.  Good Luck!

Just to update, we had our ultrasound yesterday, took all 3 of my kids with me with no issues.  The Peri wasn't thrilled at first, but she softened up ;) We were there for nearly 2 hours and my kids...

I didn't realize Dr Sears was taking new patients, she had closed her practice for many years.  Glad you found someone you are comfortable with!

Neither, my midwives use St Joe's Perinatal Associates for their ultrasounds.  I did take my 5 yr old to my 7 week scan with my 19 month old, so just over 2 years ago, and that was American...

I believe the CNMs in MD who are doing homebirth are covered by insurance (I know a friend had hers covered).  However CPMs are in a bad position, so that's not really an option.  I would drive to...

Special Beginnings only does VBACs at AAMC.  They do require constant monitoring, but they do have telemetry units, so you can be mobile.  However, once you're in the hospital the midwives have to...

I'm not aware of any hospital who allows a VBAC to waterbirth.  Most don't allow VBACs to enter water at all during labor.  You may consider a homebirth if a waterbirth is important to you.  When I...
