I'm not sure her name but she works at Brookhaven birth center in Harrisonburg, va

Jenn-Medi-cal doesn't over HB here. There is a free standing birth center down the street from that accepts medi-cal, but I have Kaiser now, so that's not an option for me. My midwife at Kaiser had all water home births, so I know she understands. I adore her. I wish she could come to my house and be my doula or something. I'm not sure CNM are allowed to attend home births here. I think it's just LM's are something.
I'm having on heck of a time ordering DD's first birthday outfit. Etsy confusing the daylights out of me. I found a few people that I like their stuff, but one was a little cocky in her emails, and another I'm confused on her price and listings, although her emails are nice! Another is $70, but matches the shoes I wanna get her.
Do you mean CNM or CPM? I'm pretty sure in Cali they all can do homebirths if they choose. Mine was a CNM.
