Re: Help! Completely changing plans for birth?
Only CNM's are allowed to legally do homebirths in North Carolina. There is one I know of that serves the Raliegh area (Carrboro Midwifery). I went to a birth center almost two hours away and the travel during labor wasn't that bad. I did the hypnobabies program so on the way, I just laid the seat back and listened to the tracks on my Ipod. I actually didn't transfer to there until 30 weeks. I would set up an interview w/ a hb midwife and the birth center and then go w/ what feels right. After having an out of hospital experience after two hospital births, I will only have a hospital birth if medically neccesary. It was so worth it. This time I'm planning a homebirth. Good luck!
