I live in the Rochester NY area and am due with my second child in July. I had a very bad experience with my first birth (it was a C section) and would like to try for a home birth this time. Can anyone recommend a good midwife? Thanks in advance!

I've seen one recommended in the AP Rochester Yahoo group. I believe she does home births, but I'm not too involved with that group so you could check it out?

I'm in Rochester as well, and planning a home birth with Meg Grindrod. To the best of my knowledge, she's the only CNM available to Rochester, NY. And she'll attend home or hospital. I really like her, which is good since she's the only one around! Also, have you checked out the Rochester Home birth circle? They meet the third Sunday of every month, and I love attending there (if you go in January, I'll be there! Check out their webpage: RABN
