I would first try to find out who the local Midwives are in your area. Look into this as if you were going to be having you baby with her. Do you feel comfortable with her etc.... Find a program to study with DONA or Cappa are a few I trained with Dona but certified with Cappa. Once the Training (3 days) is finished you can pretty much shadow a Midwife in homebirths or birth center births(free standing) DONA's site Cappa's site
