Welcome to the board! Congrats on your decision to look into your options.

As far as convincing DH, check out the sticky on the board. In my experience it was actually my midwife who in the end convinced DH. He got to ask all his "what if" questions and based on my midwife's answers and experience, he was comfortable with their plans.

In finding a midwife, you can do a simple google search for midwives in your state. You may see some names that look familiar, or in your area. Another suggestion is contacting your local LLL or even a local Meetup group. If you come up empty handed, let us know, and we might be able to help as well.

As far as unassisted and assisted, that is truly an important decision. For us, and my DH's comfort level, we have chosen to go assisted. I think that sort of decision is best left up to each family.
