Thanks everyone for the replies. The administrator at the office that I contacted stated that she only knew of one midwife in the practice that may be willing to "consider" it, but if she was at another birth when I went into labour that I would have to go to the hospital. I am really uncomfortable with that option. I'm just not quite sure what to do. I know without a doubt I will be staying at home as long as humanly possible this time (last time my water broke at 37 weeks and I didn't know what to do - so we went straight to the hospital before I even had a single contraction ). My DH is very peaceful and non-confrontational, so to help me ensure that no drugs are administered / no unnecessary internals / no unnecessary monitoring take place I will have to find a very understanding and assertive doula. I would really just prefer to birth at home, I fear going back to the hospital will result in a lot of things I would like to avoid, obviously and especially another c-section.
