It's SO much money...
I just wrote a $4500 check to our homebirth midwives group. I have an appointment this afternoon and I was going to pay off the balance then. (I hate making payments and like getting my bills paid up front - always.)
THAT'S SO MUCH MONEY!
My HMO insurance will cover *everything* 100% if I have a hospital birth. *sigh* This hospital has a policy to induce at 40 to 41 weeks and they have a very high c-section rate.
I've been dreaming of a natural birth at home since I was a 11 years old watching my mother birth my sister at home.
Please say something to take my mind off this hefty chunk of cash! It's starting to make me a little sick. And no... my HMO insurance won't cover a penny.
Me (31) married 8/19/07.
Our first pregnancy ended in a loss Feb 2013.
BFP 5/13/2013! Baby #1 due Jan or Feb 2014.
