I have been told there is an OB who does homebirths around the Detroit area.  Can anyone provide contact info for her?  I  am having no luck googling. Wondering if she's still in the area, if she accepts insurance, and if anyone can recommend her.

I've never heard of an OB doing homebirths in this area.  There was a dr (don't think she was an OB) who did homebirths, but she's moved out of state.

Kathy Kleinert was a general practitioner who attended homebirths.  She moved to Oregon last year.

If you're interested, there are some really great home birth midwives in the area, and some really great hospital midwives that have OBs available to help if needed. Depending on where you live, and how far you're willing to drive, there are a couple of birth centers nearby as well.
