Re: When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

I don't know of an insurance that covers a midwife unless she is certified, not all of them are! I also know that alot of insurances do not cover homebirth. Definately call to find out!

My MW is a CNM and the BCBS plan I had did cover. There were lots of billing issues she had to fight though. I would find out the details o your specific plan and call some midwives to find out if they accept that plan.

Should I be looking for a new MW? I has been almost 2.5 weeks since I first messaged her.
I live in Nebraska and we only have one homebirth midwife here who sorta does it underground since its illegal to have a certified midwife attend homebirths here so she gave up her license to do it, so I didn't have the opportunity to 'shop' around and I'll tell you what... she had some issues with getting back to me promptly, but I think it was only because her life is busy and I didn't hold it against her, and she did a wonderful job at the birth so I'd say if and when you get a chance to talk with her maybe you could overlook her not getting back with you in a timely matter, and as long as she is on-call for you for the birth and does prenatals I think midwives do a lot and need some grace!

I haven't called yet. I figure I'll go around 8 or 9 weeks. My old OB wouldn't see you until 9 weeks.
