How do you find a good HBMW? Ask around, particularly in "crunchy" circles like LLL.

What kind of rates do they usually have? Depends on the going rate for your area. It's $2500 around here but that includes all the prenatals which would be pro-rated down for you most likely.

What do you think are my chances of one taking me if I am 39/40 weeks pg? Depends on the midwife. I switched to a birthing center birth when I was 37 weeks with Cameron.

BTW, I go from high, hard, and closed - in other words NOT dilated and NOT effaced - at the beginning of labor. My kids have been 7 days, 5 days, and 10 days overdue.
