I know Anne. One of my friends is seeing her right now and one of my very good friends was her apprentice for years. I'm in LC so I go to the birth center in Orange, Texas, just across the border. Becca and Sarah, the midwives there, are good friends of mine, and I used to work there. I'm having twins, anyway, and Louisiana law does not allow midwives to handle multiple gestation cases whereas in Texas, twins are within the scope of a midwife's practice.

Nc and she charges 3200 for 1st time birthes, 2700 for 2nd+. But she also is AWESOME and helped us because we were dirt poor and only charged like 1500 for each of our 2 births. her. Birth center just south of us in sc was only like 2500 cash option (we don't have ins).

TWINS! You are in my prayers :-) I would love a HB but my DH has not one ounce of nursing or child caring abilities. It would be a disaster! My other 7 children would be on there own because he can't handle them for a hour :-( He's one of those that bring the lap top and headphones and watch movies the whole delivery. Thank God for my BF and MIL! He'll just tell them to bring them the epidural!!!

$2500 for the midwife, $500 for the doula/assistant, we pay for labs and ultrasounds separate.

My mw charges $4000 but bills the insurance more. I am waiting to see what percentage my insurance will reimburse me for. Ultrasounds and bloodwork are not included.

My friend had twins...they pretended not to notice and be 'surprised' at the birth just so she could have a home birth.

I think it's $4,500 to $6,500, depending on if you pay up front by thirty-six weeks or not for self-pay. She is willing to work with people who can't afford this price, but no one can afford to work for free.

Re: What does your midwife charge?

$3,900 in california. Covered all prenatal, birth and 24 hr, 72 hr, 2 week, and 6 week check ups. As well as well baby check ups at those post partum visits. So basically no need to leave the house for 2 weeks Those fees also included a birth tub. They did not include any testing, but my mw has connections to a lab that offers cash paying customers a wonderful discount.
