Where in MI are you? North, east, southeast, west, southwest or right in the middle?
I'm in Norther Lower MI but am from the Southeast Area - Ann Arbor. I found my midwife where i live now by doing a local search on google. I don't have many options up here as I would have where I am from.
I cant remember the websites name but it gives you a list of midwives in our state. If you google Michigan Homebirth Midwives it should come up. Then I would start doing research on that midwife and call to set up a consultation. You shouldn't have an issue even if you're not pregnant Good luck!
We have a directory for birth professionals, which include hospital and homebirth Midwives for my state. I went through the whole list and then interviewed my Midwife a few months before I was pregnant and decided to hire her.
I don't think there is any harm with picking up a few things. I know for us, our supply list has a bunch of things that we already had around the house (or should have), things like Arnica, peroxide, Vaseline, paper towels, garbage bags etc. No harm in picking those things up now, you might need them anyways. For me, I'd wait on ordering the actual birth kit until later though.
