My homebirth midwife did births that were 3 and 4 hours away for several years, in addition to those local to her. There is now a midwife for the NC Outer Banks, but my midwife practices in about a 2 hour radius from where she lives in Raleigh. She knows when to come, and when to dispatch a doula who lives closer to be with you while she is en route. On rare occasions, her doula caught the baby, but usually she got there just fine. My last 2 labors have been really fast, for instance, and I call her after 2 contractions to let her know what's happening. With your labor history, I think you'd be fine.

Thank you BAM for my signature!!
