I just moved to Kokomo, Indiana.  I'm pregnant with our second child.  I had the first overseas in a clinic where the staff supported my doing natural childbirth.  I'm trying to find a doctor here who will also support that decision as well as a hospital where the staff are going to be supportive.  Any suggestions?

Welcome to Kokomo :) Unfortunately Kokomo is not very natural friendly. Everyone I know is induced and c-section rates are pretty high. I am pregnant with my first and we are driving to Anderson, which is about an hour away. I'm not sure if that is possible for you but we are seeing a midwife group which I love. The hospital offers birthing tubs and free doula services. I know it is quite a drive but I did not want to be induced and me and hubby were too nervous to have a home birth with our first. If you want anymore info just let me know!
