I just found out that we are expecting our 4th (collectively), but we are new to the Midland Michigan area and I am dead-set on having a homebirth... Problem is, my search is coming up with nothing! I found one midwfery service out here, and they never answer the phone and their voicemail is always full! Just wondering if their are any other Mama's in the Midland/Bay City/Saginaw area that can help me out?? I saw another post about this area but it was from 2011... Not very recent. :irked
Money is also an issue for us, seeing as though I am a stay at home Mom and my husband is the only one working. I am praying that we find someone generous enough to work with us. 
Any help would be appreciated!

Have you tried Laurie Zoyiopoulos? Her website is Cathy Dowd is in your area. You might be able to find her contact information at Maybe you could consider getting a temporary part time job in the evenings to pay for your care?

We live in Caro, Michigan and had a homebirth with Cathy Dowd, I think she lives in Bay City. I do know there is someone else out of Saginaw. So there are midwives out there, you'll find them eventually :) good luck!


edited to add:

oh I just looked at the MMA website and see that Sondra Bolzman is listed. She was working with (apprenticing?? perhaps) with Cathy Dowd during our pregnancy and birth one year ago. She was very nice.

I'm sure you've found a provider by now but yes Cathy dowd services midland/saginaw area and Kelly aguilera. I think both cost about $1500 and I know Kelly told me herself that she is willing to work with moms because she wants HB available to everyone. I've never talked to Cathy but I'd say she's probably like-minded on that.
