I am a first time mommy to be and am pulling my hair out trying to find a provider that will attend my home birth. I decided to home birth after finding out that having an "unplugged" natural birth in a hospital is basically not going to happen here.
I just read that "Practicing as a direct-entry midwife is still (as of May 2006) illegal under certain circumstances in Washington, D.C. and the following states: Alabama, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Dakota and Wyoming. However, Certified Nurse Midwives can legally practice in these areas."
Does this mean legal home birth is out of the question for me? Can anyone recommend a provider that will attend a home birth in Southern Indiana? If I can't find anyone I may need to just have an unassisted home birth.
