With my last birth I had a hospital birth, and without all the details lets just say I am traumatized.

I am due in September and I desperately want to have a homebirth.
The only midwife around that would do a homebirth is charging $4,000 and I do not have that kind of money to spend. Do you ladies have any advice on how to go about asking family for help with the costs, without sounding like I am trying to mooch? The only person in my family on my side who would be able to help is my Aunt, who is almost 60 and has never had any children of her own... DHs side could probably chip in too... I just don't know how to go about asking for this kind of money...

All of our expenses are going towards a bigger car, things the baby will need, a new house, birthdays and the holidays following the baby's birth.
