Re: Birth Center/ Midwife costs vs. hospital birth?

The midwife comes to my house and visits me instead of having to pack 3 kids to the Dr's office too

That must be awesome!!! Our state pregnancy medi-cal doesn't cover homebirth at all. They do cover a birth center, but I'm not sure how it all works.

If I didn't have insurance, I deliver at the birth center because it's about $5000, but they give discounts for no insurance families.
I wish my insurance covered the birth center!!!!
