The Northern Virginia Homebirth Community

(List of midwives who serve Northern Virginia)

A group of consumers created and maintained the community website comprised of questions about legality, safety, frequently asked questions, and stories from Northern Virginia families. The data and community still exists but a dedicated website must be created and moderated by members of the community. There is a "novahomebirth" yahoo group open to everyone seeking community and resources as well, moderated by midwife Tammi McKinley. The following is a list of out of hospital Midwives who serve the Northern Virginia Community to contact directly. Write ( If you are a midwife and would like to be added or modifications made, the text was transferred directly from the original site and has not been altered. Also please contact me if you are a consumer looking to restore the site.
