Anyone had a homebirth in/around KC area?

DH and I are seriously considering a homebirth this time around. There just seems to be so many benefits all around. I would like to be in my house, with as little intervention as possible. I am determined to have a natural laboring experience this time. I have had 3 epidurals and with this being my last pregnancy would like to actually know what birth is supposed to be like.

Anyway, Have you had one? How did you find your midwife? Any suggestions for me?

I haven't (yet!), but I know that there are several midwives in the area that do homebirths. Midwives of Kansas City come to mind (you can find them on facebook) and a good resource to find other mws would be the KC Birth Network. Ooh and Brookie-Lee over at Happybottomus in Overland Park had a hb I think, and also has a lot of information there.

Good luck!

No but I did have a completely natural birth in hospital and it was a VBAC and the baby was early. My doctor is amazing and very respectively I think the biggest factor is your doctor and being prepared.

I had a vbac at 36 weeks at overland park regional with dr estrin. you can use a midwife and you see estrin (obgyn) a few times during your pregnancy.

I planned a homebirth but ended up at the hospital because I was two weeks overdue. My midwife came with us to the hospital and we still had a natural birth, yay! My midwife was Cheryl Gates. She is wonderful!!! My friend had a successful homebirth using Rachel Williston. Let me know if you have any questions!
