After having a less then peaceful natural childbirth at the hospital, I am now convinced that for my next I want to have a home birth. When I started researching midwives in the Sacramento area I was really disturbed by the prices I was being quoted. I know what they do and how important they are and all their qualifications, but it just feels like a business to me. A serious one where they are making serious money.... I asked one of the ladies how many she has a year and she said 24.. 24x $4,000 equals sitting pretty. I need to just breath about it, but right now I am so turned off. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
