Lacey you hang in're not in the best spot on earth for natural childbirth (I grew up in Utah) but I bet you could find a good midwife or doula if you hunted. It's hard sometimes - my mom is an RN and she's completely freaked out about my not wanting to give birth in a hospital! - but just hang on to the fact that you're trying to do the absolute best thing for your baby and your self!

My sister in law (love her!) is actually going to be my doula! I'm going to be using the midwife that she used for her last delivery as well so it will be a nice comfortable, familiar setting. Just the rolls will be switched with her and I ha ha!
