Moving mid-pregnancy-Tricare question

We just found out we are moving to a new base in the middle of June, which will make me 5 months pregnant. At the base we are at now we were able to go to a hospital that did waterbirths with certified nurse midwives. That was my plan again but obviously that won't happen. I can't seem to find information on switching my care halfway through, and finding a cnm that attends waterbirths has been impossible. In my research it looks like insurance won't cover a CPM, only a CNM. The base is in a very small town (Goodfellow AFB) and I'm unsure of how to proceed. Can I work with Tricare to get it covered?
