Re: homebirth?

I wish I was! I can't with my medical history. However I have lots of friends that are pregnant right now and I think at least half of them are giving birth at home.

I wish you loads of luck!

I was planning on it but I can't afford $6200! I wish I had more options here.

Its a little cheaper here, but once I pay for the ultrasound around 20 weeks it'll be pretty close. AND this'll be the third one in three years

We wouldn't qualify. Our insurance covers homebirth but we'd have to pay the midwife upfront and after my ds dental work and fixing hubby's work car, there's just no way. I also need extensive dental work and we're visiting family in Florida soon. We spent a few grand on ds dental work and have been fighting insurance for 7 months to get reimbursed so I'm leery of going through that again. I want a home birth but don't want to put off everything else, ya know? I did find a great ob who attended a natural VBAC for a sweet ds mama, I'm so glad she recommended him to me!
