There is a Birth Center in Charlottesville called The Birthing Place. The midwife there was my midwife at my homebirth. She was really great. The other midwife that was there is from the valley area, I think. My midwife I think is also from Staunton area, from what I understand. I think that there are also midwives at August Health, but I don't know any of them personally.

There is another local midwife who just does home births. Her business is Nine Moons Midwifery, and her name is Debbie Wong. I have heard great things about her, and I have talked to her many times. She was a doula and then trained to be a midwife, and works as both now.
