I am 34 weeks, and am unhappy with my midwife (pushes interventions, just like a typical OB). I am desperate for a gentle, natural birth. I'm close to throwing up my hands and having this one unassisted in my bathtub.

I am also looking for a dr for my kids. We don't vaccinate. We don't give antibiotics for colds. Our current ped told me to stop breast feeding and give pedialyte when my baby was sick. We got fired from the ped before that. So my kids haven't had a "checkup" in over a year. They are healthy, though.

The catch is, we're all on Medicaid. I cannot afford much, if anything, out of pocket. Can anyone help?

These are the midwives that I know of in that area, not sure if they take medicaid or not.  I am pretty sure that Vicki used to and may still.  She seems very hands off to me in regards to birth (as long as all is going well):
