Wow that does seem high but I don't know about Florida's COL .
I forgot about the birth kit but I think that is less than $200 and the birth tub rental is another hundred at least. The fee includes 3 visits at the house after the birth and 3 office visits for the baby before 6 weeks.

$3,000 in Colorado for all of the midwife's care. About $100 or so for the birth kit and our insurance covered blood work and the anatomy scan.

I live in Canada, and I don't pay a cent, all covered under my Government Medical Service plan. I see other mamas' from Canada paid. Was this for maybe a doula service?
