My husband has been working in North Carolina the last few months on a short-term contract job while I've stayed here in the Chicago area. Now, his employers are talking about offering him a more permanent position, so I'll be joining him in about 3 weeks from now!

I'm super excited that we'll finally be together again, but I hate to leave in the middle of this pregnancy. I love my homebirth midwife here. It took me so long to find her, too!!

So now I am completely freaking out about finding another midwife around the Raleigh, NC area. I do not want to go the hospital/doctor route, but I don't even know the legal status of midwives in NC. Is it legal for a midwife to attend a home birth or do they need to practice in a hospital/birth center??

Any suggestions or tips for me on finding another good midwife and their legal status there? I will LOVE you for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a birth center in Chapel Hill, which isn't far from Raleigh, I remember it being only about 20 minutes: Women's Birth & Wellness Center. Chapel Hill, North Carolina

There's a woman on here from another PR I'm in that is having a home birth in NC, so they are legal. Pop into the Natural Childbirth board (link in my siggy) because I know she is on there and could give you some more information and resources.

I don't have any advice (though I am from NC, just was too young when we moved). Good luck!

Okay I looked it up and it looks like they do NOT license CPMs or DEMs, only CNMs. BUT you can still have a home birth or birth center birth with a CNM.
I was going to post that same link for the birth center near Raleigh!

Here's a midwife directory too:
Find a Midwife in North Carolina | Directory of North Carolina Midwives | Midwifery in North Carolina List

I'm sure if you call the birth center and talk to them they will be able to help you find someone even if you don't end up going there for the birth!

That midwifery is really nice. When my wife gave birth, we went to that and now I have a bouncing baby girl.
