<span><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Hello East Tennesseeans!<br>
I think I'm coming home! After a two year hiatus in New Mexico to work on some special birthing skills I believe I'm going to make my return to East TN. I'll be coming to work as a nurse at the Lisa Ross center and offering my doula services and Birthing From Within classes.<br>
I lived and worked in TN for 12 years and may have even attended some of your births and now I need some suggestions.<br>
When I lived there two years ago I was in McMinn Cty - south of Knox and very small - this time I want the urban feel of city life and I need to be reasonably close to the center. I do have three kiddos so a 1 bdr loft won't work - as much as I'd love that!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> So can anyone make any suggestions to me? How's birth in TN these days?<br>
Love-<br>
Barb</span></span></span>

Would you consider letting me attend one of your class series? Im working on my cbe through ALACE but there isnt anyone around here that offers classes through that program. I need to attend one series of classes for the cert. Im hoping to attend more than just a class at the hospital. I live in middle tn but have family in morgan co so we are there pretty regularly. Let me know if that would be ok once you get started. I would really appreciate it! I read the book, BFW, while i was pregg-o with my second daughter and fell in love with it.

Well a place in North or south knox would be your best bet. I live in Old North Knoxville and am about 10 minutes from Lisa Ross (and I might be delivering there late Jan/early feb if i can't make the HB thing work). There lots of homes for sale and for rent in North Knox right now. Good luck and welcome back!

There is a great network in Chattanooga, on Yahoo! groups called Mountain Mothers Birth Network. Jillanna is the owner of the group, and it is a great resource for all things birthing. There are quite a few doulas, Bradley instructors, midwives, etc and lots of mommas into AP. Hope this helps!

Hi Barb!<br>
Just wanted to say "hi" and welcome you back. I took you're doula training a few years ago (remember me... I had a baby tied to me!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) Where is the Lisa Ross Center?<br>

Hey there! Of course I remember you...how is your birth work going? Lisa Ross is in Knoxville so I'll be up on the other end of Tennessee.
