I believe it was 36 weeks for my midwife, but I don't know if that's her own choice or by law of the state. I remember being very happy when I reached that point because I knew we had the green light to birth at home

Depending on your birth history, my MWs is usually 36 or 37. I do have a friend who had two babies at 35 weeks, and was approved for anythign 35 weeks and beyond but mainly b/c shes had 2 births at 35 weeks, and neither baby needed any additional care - which is very unusual.
Depends on what the midwife is comfortable with and how sure of your dates you are. Usually 35-37 weeks for most midwives.
