Does anyone know of a midwife who will attend a VBAC homebirth in Chicago?

 

My first DD was a vaginal birth in 2007 and my second was a c/s due to breech in 2009.  I've been told I'm a good candidate for a VBAC.  I will otherwise be going to Swedish Covenant with their midwives.. but homebirth is something I really want to do if possible.

 

During my last pregnancy, Jen at A Woman's Place was the only one I could get ahold of.  She's moving her practice to Canada- so that's not an option.

 

Please PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting the midwife's info here.

 

Doula recs are also welcome!

 

Btw, I'm on the northwest side of Chicago.

Hey WindyCityMom, I was wondering if you were able to find any valuable info about your questions. I am a chicago native  living in san francisco and wish to be home for my birth but im having very little luck with figuring out how midwives/cnm's/doulas work here. I'd appreciate any help! thanks!
