Usually you need a midwife in order to do a home birth, some doctors will do it, but not many. Check out this site and do a search in your area to find some midwives:

www.birthpartners.com

Also if you get in touch with a Bradley childbirth educator, they probably will know names of people in your area that do homebirths. Their web site is:

www.bradleybirth.com

Good luck with your search!
