DH and I lived in Covelo, CA last year and we're moving back in August. We'll probably end up permanently living in Humboldt or maybe Weaverville in Trinity.

The question is....
We're ttc #1 and I want a midwife assisted water birth. We live in an RV so homebirth isnt really an option. I've been doing some research and I cant find any birthing centers in the area. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

We have a birth center here in SoCal but I've heard NorCal moms can't find one. Have you thought about having a midwife at a hospital?

Yes, that is plan B. I just really, really want a water birth and I'm afraid I wont have access to that in a hospital.

Well, it isn't super-close, but this is where I did my NCB. They do have waterbirth tubs available, but I elected not to use one. They allowed me to register and deliver there, and I lived a few counties away. I did have to drive more than an hour for my prenatal appointments with their CNMs, but it was worth it to me. Driving up to deliver was longer, but still worth it.

The Birth Day Place

or you could call the CNMs and ask if they no of any resources near you? Lisa runs the office and is amazingly nice and a big water birth fan.


You can email them through that site, too.

Thank you so much! We aren't opposed to driving a long distance if we find the right place because we would just get a hotel and camp out as my due date/ early signs of labor approached.
