Specifially I am looking for more of a househelp and moral support for our Unassisted homebirth. We have 5 children that plan on being there for a homebirth but I would like my husband to have the ability to have his total focus on helping me. Friends and family are out of the question as they are not supportive of a homebirth which would have it very counterproductive of being there. I want someone comfortable with birth and understanding of my importance of family to have my kids there if that is what they want. I do not have much money (why I didnt shell out over $3000 for a midwife) so I wanted to see what my options are.


is there anyone out there?

I just joined this group, forgive me. I do know a doula here in Rockford, her name is Shelly Vandervort. She's a certified Doula. I know it's likely too late now for this information, but in the event anyone else is seeking a Doula in the area.
