"H.O.M.E. Meetings" are a tradition
of home birth families dating back to April, 1974 when a group
of five women conceived the idea of an educational
organization for couples needing information and support for
home birth. Since then, H.O.M.E. grew into a cohesive
group of parents and birth attendants who support safe home
birth in nearly every state in the U.S. and in Israel.
The H.O.M.E. series consists of five meetings which are
offered free of charge and cover all aspects of home
birth. Resources such as books, video showings,
literature and professional assistance are provided.
Mothers, fathers, family members, friends and any interested
persons are encouraged to participate in the full series
because it is the parents' responsibility to prepare for a
safe home birth.
The Home Oriented Maternity Experience is devoted to helping
couples achieve the optimum experience of a safe home birth;
bringing together those who have had home births, those who
want home birth, professionals and childbirth educators.
Midwife, Alice Skenandore, formerly of the Las Vegas Area
Midwives, introduced H.O.M.E. to northeast Wisconsin when she
re-located to Oneida in 1992. In conjunction with Alice
Skenandore and Wise Women Gathering Place, we began offering
H.O.M.E. meetings in August 1997. Since then we have had
the pleasure of organizing approximately 140 H.O.M.E. Meetings
and the honor of serving over 675 participants.
