Have any of you done this. I think this is the route we want to go. I don't know how to even get started though. I don't know where to find a midwife that will deliver at home etc.

Depends on if it even legal in your state.

I already had a great midwife before I got pregnant. My sister had a baby a couple of years before I did, so I went with her midwife.

Yes, I have. I just Googled home birth midwives in my state. There are only 2 in my area. One was certified and one wasn't. That made my decision easy.

She was wonderful. She was also there for me when I lost my son on thanksgiving instead of being with her family.

No, I personally don't care for midwives and personally home births are not for us.

Yes, my third child was a HBA2C with two midwives.  I loved it.

We found our midwives through a google search of midwives and birth centers in our area.

Personally, I wouldn't. But to each his own, good luck!

That was my plan with ds. Apparently he didn't like that idea because I ended up having a c section at 42 weeks 2 days. I just googled midwives in my area.
