I'm due at the end of July. Anyone have recommendations for a midwife who will do homebirths in Fremont? What's the average cost for prenatal and homebirth services?
Homebirth Midwife in/near Fremont, California?
You could try Mason Cornelius of Nova Midwifery ( http://www.novamidwifery.com/ ). It was more than three years ago that she was my midwife so I don't know how far she travels these days but she's not too far from Fremont.
I loved having Mason as my midwife and would recommend her :)
I don't remember how much she charged but my insurance at the time reimbursed most (all?) of her fees. I want to say that it was in the $5000 range (? Maybe??)
If she does not travel out that far, she may know if there are any midwives in your area. I hope that you are able to find a midwife that is a good fit for you! :)
I think Awakening Birth Services goes down there.
I'm birthing with them in March and my fee is $4,500; they are two licensed midwives and they both go to every birth.
I interviewed with Mason who works with a midwife in Danville, an't remember her name at the moment and I think they charges $4000 or $4,200.
Hope that helps and congratulations!
