This is a great thread- I had been wondering the same thing. We live on the second floor, and I'd kind of like to have a home birth, but wasn't sure about the logistics. I do have one question- I've read that most midwives will help clean up the birth area, including starting a load of laundry. We actually don't have laundry in our building- we go to blocks to a laundrymat. Is it "uncool" to ask the midwife to go there? Like is that asking too much?
