I am currently looking around western Missouri and eastern Kansas for somewhere to move immediately with cheap rent that is safe as well. However, I am pregnant and plan to homeschool and am trying to decide whether Missouri or Kansas is more 'crunchy' for homebirths (lay midwives or CPM or even UC) and homeschooling. Is it fairly easy to have a natural birth and find non-vax or delayed vax-friendly docs in western MO? Are they open to attachment parenting there?
Any Missouri mamas believe Missouri is better for us?
I need to find a place for us to live NOW and am overwhelmed on which is the better choice - I do NOT want to end up with another horrible hospital birth experience like I did in my previous state and I don't want to worry about defending my legal right constantly to homeschool. I am a single mama and feel VERY vulnerable right now, in case it is not obvious. I will be working from home but right now money is VERY tight so even affordable small towns within 20-40 minutes driving distance to 'civilization' but still safe would be great!
