Hi! I am not pregnant yet, but I am trying to conceive. I haven't been successful at finding any birthing centers that support a natural birthing atmosphere yet.

If anyone can recommend one or point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

By the way, I live in Chesapeake but have lived in VB most of my life. I am willing to travel up to an hour away.

I'm not a midwife, but I do stay at the Holiday Inn Express once in awhile!

The birthing center at Depaul would be my number one pick. I am a doula and childbirth educator in the vb area. I am so impressed at how you are being so proactive and checking out all your options in advance. check out our website. [url=http://www.birthinsightva.com]Birth InSight[/url]

This is interesting, I'd like to learn more about this. Does anyone know how the Orgasm thing works with giving natural birth?

I've also had friends deliver at the DePaul midwifery center. They had great experiences. I chose Leigh (cause it was so close) and had a doula attend both my births. It's great you're getting educated now. I also recommend hypnobirthing as a form of pain management during labor. Good luck.

Does anyone know...do you have to get your Prenatal care through the midwifes at the DePaul Midwifery Center in order to birth there? I just did a Tricare (Prime) search for nurse midwifes in the area and there aren't many options. I was wondering if there are Ob/Gyn docs that might take Tricare and be more supportive of natural childbirth.

Yes, you will need to be seen by the midwives and its important you go once you find out your pregnant. I believe they must see you before 20 weeks it might even be earlier than that.
I encourage you to join Birth Matters. Every other month they host a birth circle. Advocating group to support and encourage women to have empowering natural births. It's held at night in Norfolk.

Also, the groups are not just to support natural births, they are to support and inform birthing mommas and their partners, so, no matter your birth preferences, please feel free to join us and learn all your options for your best birth experience.
