Re: How to ask homebirth midwife for a refund

My understanding is that sugars don't necessarily leak into the urine, so it is not always an accurate way to test. The only way to know for sure is to do the gd test again closer to birth or be tracking your glucose levels even in spite of a passed glucose test. I'd also demand the 2 or 3 hour test (depending on where you are), and skip the one hour. I know a fair number of women (under OB care) who passed the one and three hour tests and still had lapsed gd when they gave birth...

Re: How to ask homebirth midwife for a refund

I dunno mama. I dont have any experience with HB or MW or anything but just by reading the info available I dont think you should expect to recieve anything back. If you feel like you are, then ask though. All she can say is no and give you an explanation as to why.
