Military Moms: Nov/Dec 2010 - Page 5

post #81 of 95

Im in the same situation, DH leaves in less than a month and both older kids, who are usually really well behaved, have been getting in trouble at school and home for doing things very out of character for them :(

post #82 of 95

I am not looking forward to DH's next deployment when the kids are older... he is deployed right now but they are 2.5, 1.5 and 2 months and they have been a little weird but nothing like I am guessing it will be when they are a bit older.

Hello...this is my very first post on MDC so I hope I am doing this right.  I am an AF wife and mama to two little girls (ages 3 and 15 months).  We just PCS'd to the DC area 1 Nov from FL. 

 

I haven't had much luck finding like-minded military mamas...but perhaps I have come to the right place?

I was lucky at first to find other military moms who also are about the same amount of crunchy as I am (breastfeed and/or cloth diaper, for example... though I homebirthed and one had never even thought of it, the other had a hospital birth with the midwives I homebirthed with)

 

but the more ladies here I meet the more I see I actually am somewhat of a minority. Ive had a great reception to breastfeeding but my goodness, when I have the baby in the Moby people look at me like I have two heads (hahahahaha i sort of do in that case...)

 

(ETA by "here" i mean where i live, not this website... by far!)

Lol. I feel the same way MaerynPearl. I had my 7 months old in my Ergo, who was sleeping, the other night out at dinner in Jacksonville and I told my husband people were looking at me like I had two heads.  Also, did you have your homebirth where you live now?

Hi everyone! I'm an Army wife, and we are stationed at Ft. Stewart, GA!

 

Does anyone have any experience in getting Tricare to cover a homebirth? The midwife is a CNM, and I know that they are supposed to cover those.

Call Tricare, some CNM's are actually covered, but under standard.  They will be able to tell you more.  I had a friend who had a hb with tricare.

its talked about a lot and usually the answers are less than reassuring and vary a lot depending on who you talk to with tricare

Thanks! That was very helpful!

I just had a homebirth in April and Tricare won't pay because I had to use a CPM.  This was under Tricare Prime Remote. Tricare will cover the birth if the CNM is, or is willing to become a Tricare approved provider.  Most, if not all CNM can become approved providers even if they only do homebirths.  My midwife has appealed two times to Tricare for me and now I am going to try one more time.  It is harder for a CPM to get approved, but it can be done if you want to deal with the hassle.  My daughters birth has already been paid for by me, I am mostly still pursuing this to help pave the way for others and to show Tricare that there is a need that should be met. My homebirth was in Wisconsin.  A state that recognizes CPM's as licensed medical care providers.

It's been slow here, or there's a new thread that I missed!  Did hdeering have her baby?

 

Huz spoke with his assignment officer and was told that there are two couples with colocation issues in Kodiak, so we can basically scratch that off our wish list for this assignment.  So now we're down to basically four locations.  I'm really anxious.  Hoping that we know at least by the first week of Feb., because we're planning a trip to DC to see my parents, and if we end up there I'll want to look around. 

 

Adorkable, you're up near Bethesda, right?  I just noticed that your twins are B/G!  joy.gif  You're birthing at Bethesda?  You'll have to let us know how it goes there.

Hi kate, yeah im right around the corner from NNMC in Bethesda, and hopefully will get no where near it while i birth! we have a great homebirth MW and are set up to do it here. i am glad we are so close for any transfer need, since that helped calm DH to the homebirth idea.

i get my prenatal care at NNMC and some of the folks are nice one High risk OB is actually pretty great, its the general policies of the L&D that i just cant stand.

Just interested, is your HB midwife someone who also has NNMC privliges?  Just curious...I would have loved to have had the opportunity to have a good MW since mine was horrible...
