My name is Shari Lewis and I am a photojournalist at The Columbus Dispatch. A reporter and I are looking for an expectant mother who is planning her first home birth (doesn't have to be her first birth). We would like to tell her birth story by following her through the remainder of her pregnancy and the birth of her baby. We are preferably looking for someone who is expecting the end of May/beginning of June.
Please let me know if you are interested.
I fear I don't quite fit your timeline -- we are expecting our first baby July 21-- but I am planning to have a home birth with the assistance of Choice Midwives. I would be happy to help with your story, or you may consider calling Choice and asking for a referral. They only attend home births. Good Luck!

First of all, congratulations! You might actually fit the timeline just right. I would love to hear more about your pregnancy and your birth plan. If you are interested in talking to me, you can email or call me at firstname.lastname@example.org/614-270-4791. I look forward to hearing from you.
I may have a mother who would consider this.....due mid-August. If that is of interest to you, pm me....and I will pass word on to the couple for their consideration.
