The point was that they might accept Medicaid, so you wouldn't have to be able to afford it. And the PP was saying that even 2 hrs away might not be too far. It will just depend on the midwife.

Another thing I was thinking is some birth centers accept Medicaid and also have a homebirth option, if there are no other clients in labor at the same time. Do you have any birth centers nearby? This could be an option to consider.
