What things would disqualify you from having a home birth?

I think it has a lot to do with what your state allows and then what the individual midwives are comfortable with handling - maybe you can do a search for midwifery laws or regulations in your state and see if anything comes up? I know I read something once about Florida and how they have a "points system" for homebirth, certain things (like age, number of past births, etc) are assigned a number of points and if you exceed a limit of points then legally you're not eligible. But I'm sure it's not that cut and dry everywhere. Sorry I'm not any more help, this is my first homebirth so I'm not an expert by any means!

Typically there is a delivery time frame (generally 37-42 weeks)

uncontrolled GD, multiples, VBAC, and a few other medical conditions - again varies by state/provider

basically you cannot be "high risk" with most homebirth providers.

ditto high risk. There are some things that are higher risk that can still be there and you have a home birth. That is definitely a question to ask when interviewing midwives.

Ditto to the other ladies, I think it depends on your midwife as well as stage regulations. Good luck!
