I haven't had a home birth but I'm part of a Mommy's group that has a TON of home birthing mom's in Chicago. I know from all the threads I've read and all the conversations that I've listened to from these ladies that they are pros! I joined them on meetup.com, the group is called Chicago Mama Collective. Look them up and Hey, maybe I'll see you at a meetup!

Awesome! I'm Jill, great to meet you. Hey, what neighborhood did you end up in? I saw you were hoping for Logan Square in another thread. We're on the NW side too...Humbolt Park, but I lived in Logan Square for years and loved it. When are you due? We're having #2 7/1.

Yeah, I'm in Logan Square off Fullerton & Kimball! So probably not far from you at all!

I'm due October 31st. #3! Pretty excited, its our last baby though, so also a little sad at the same time.

I joined the group, I just need to submit a personal photo - which I need to do, LOL.

Oh & I decided to go with Jennifer @ A Woman's Place for my homebirth & Midwife services! I'm so excited, I met her last night & she is WONDERFUL!

C'est, come to the Chicago Homebirth Meetup groups. I've been going for over a year and it's a great group and really informative. I had a HB with Jen too, PM me if you want to chat more.

Almost all of the other HB info I got was in the HB forum over at Mothering.com Good luck!

Re: Chicago - Homebirths! HELP! [:

I'm so jealous! I can't wait to TTC #4! I'm hoping for a homebirth this time! I almost had my 3rd child in the car on the way to the 2nd hospital (went to the first and they insisted I be in the bed on my BACK...so I told my husband to get the car and we left) they told me I was crazy because i measured 3cm when I came in...my daughter was born 10 minutes later. I really want to be at home this time. I'm sick of fighting with OB's that I don't WANT or NEED an epidural, cervical checks from 25 weeks on, Iv's, etc... I am GBS negative and have been with all my kids. It's so frustrating that they push this medical stuff so hard! UGH!

Good luck with your homebirth! We used Homefirst and had a great experience. I've only heard good things about A Women's Place. =)
