Hey all - I have a good friend who is 14 weeks pg and trying to determine what her options are for her birth. She has had three hospital births (with epidurals) but is very interested in a natural birth this time, and possibly a home birth. She lives in Mobile, AL but will be moving soon to Pascagoula, Mississippi (about 45 min from Mobile). Does anyone know of any home birth midwives in that area? What is the legal situation for home birth there (I think AL is alegal but I'm not sure...have no idea about Miss)? I told her I'd try to find out some info for her, so any input would be appreciated!

Homebirth is legal in Mississippi. I am not sure about the Pascagoula midwives becuase that area was hit by Katrina. I know there were 2 operating on the coast before the hurricane. You should request from MANA a list of the people operating in the area. They should know where they settled
