I had another amazing Mo Bap birth last weekend. I swear, that place is worth their weight in gold!!
I walked into the LDR room and had my son within 15 minutes so there was no time to do much, but the nurse asked before doing *ANYTHING* to me (I'd like to monitor you, May I check your dilation?, Can I put a hat on him to keep him warm?, etc)...with the exception of pulling me off the toilet because I was going to have him right there if I didn't move immediately. FWIW, I had three nurses attend the birth since there wasn't enough time for my OB to get there and the resident OB was in a section at the time of my son's birth. It's a good place that really values women. My postpartum nurses rocked and just smiled as we nursed and co-slept.
aanysea - I don't know that anybody can answer the financial question for you as it depends on your insurance and and interventions you might have. For example, I paid a $20 co-pay for my first prenatal visit and everything was covered (every visit, every test, hospital stay, etc) - no matter what I had done.
Wish you a speedy recovery and enjoy!!!
