Hi, There are midwives not to far from your area. If you contact http://woman-wise.com/ and request information for a NY state provider, someone will contact you. And I remember someone else, too. Try http://www.nyhomebirth.com/. I'll bet the midwives have the answers you are looking for.
I know of a great doula that also might have some resources... her facebook page is Newborn Naturally and she's pretty wonderful. She lives around Binghamton and I believe she is getting ready to work more now that she's recovered from her baby!!
