Homebirth friendly OB at Sutter Berkeley

I have insurance to have prenatal tests/check ups at Sutter Berkeley but plan to have a home birth. Can anyone recommend a great OB to work with? Also open to East Bay home birth midwife recommendations. Thank you!

When I asked Dr. Madhavan at Sutter Milvia about concurrent care, she said they require you to leave their practice if you're planning a homebirth. When I did get pregnant, I had to sign a form attesting that I was not getting care elsewhere and not planning a homebirth. I thought it was so ridiculous, patronizing and completely focused on Sutter's liability not on actually helping moms and babies. I left the practice.
