Re: How much did your homebirth midwife cost if you paid out of pocket??

My MW was a DEM and charged $1500 for everything- prenatals (including giving me vitamins and supplements), delivery, and PP care. However, we only had to pay her $50/ appt since we were planning on UC'ing and she wasn't going to charge us the full amount if she didn't attend the birth...so it cost us a total of maybe $3-400?

However, the other MW's available in my area are mostly CPM's and they all charge about $3-4000!! That's more than we'd pay OOP for a hospital birth after insurance, and our insurance WON'T cover homebirth unless it's with a CNM (which is dumb becaue they won't do homebirths here).
