Hi my name is Beth. I am 25, and currently living in Maryland. My husband has recently gotten a job in the Chicago area. I am on a search for a midwife who is willing to preform a HBAC. (home birth after csection). I have all my life dreamt of a home birth. My goal for my first pregnancy was to have a n atural birth. I labored 36hours, wasnt progressing, (in which I blame the hospital staff for way too much unwanted intervention when I has repeatildy made clear I didnt want pain relief, I didnt want intervention..ect..)  Anyway, I am so ready to attempt a home birth. But as I read on, and do more research, there are few midwives out there who would grant my request or atleast consider it......Would anyone have any info or ideas as to if there are any midwives in the chicago area who are willing to consider a hbac?? Thanks for all the info I can get!
