Re: Midwife service- labor at home and then transfer to hospital for pushing?

I really don't want a hospital birth and am trying to figure out a way to limit the amount of time I need to be there. Ideally I would only need to go for pushing and be able to do everything else at home with my doula or midwife. I'm just trying to figure out how it would all work out financially.
