We want a water birth at home. I'm 2 months pregnant, and have been searching for a midwife for awhile now with no success :-/  I have had 2 uncomplicated pregnancies and deliveries already. Please help!

Hi, and congratulations!

Here is some information on midwives and doulas in Louisville http://www.birthcarenetwork.com/midwives.html
I highly recommend Aundria, she is a personal friend of mine. She also knows a couple of other midwives that are not listed here. Some of the midwives listed do not do homebirths, but Aundria does. I know that there are at least three other practicing midwives in Louisville that will do home/water births and Im not sure why they arent listed.

Also, if you have been looking for two months and havent found anyone, I just want to mention that Mama's Hip is a great resource for finding out about things like doulas and midwives in Louisville. Shannon runs a fantastic attachment parenting store and is full of great information that you may find useful. She hosts natural childbirth classes, playgroups, and even a new moms group with a lactation consultant for after the baby is born. http://www.mamas-hip.com/

Good luck, and also here is a link to our spot in Finding Your Tribe (I live pretty close to Louisville too):
