DH and I am about to start trying for a baby soon. Due to a recent "accident" (said with love :) ) I may already be a few days preggers, it's too early to tell yet.
Either way this little oops moment has gotten me to thinking it may be time to start looking into homebirthing in NEPA. I'm located about 30 min's from Scranton, 30 min's from Tobyhanna, and 30 min's from Honesdale.
I know nothing of homebirth in this area and have hospital birthed my previous two kids. I have a few questions for those of you who know more about this then I do.
*I already have a few names of midwives but am looking to see if there are any more. If you could tell me some of them that would be greatly appreciated. Any experiences you may have had with them then please feel free to post or pm me.
*Are there any doctors/hospital birthing midwives who are comfortable with shadow care that anyone knows about? I want shadow care mainly so that my ins. will pay for testing. I also want it in case I need to transfer and then I would have an 'in' at the hospital.
*Also any specific information on Geisinger ins. or Aetna. I currently have Geisinger but may have the opportunity to switch to Aetna in the near future. Any ideas as to which is better. (my guess is Aetna but not totally sure on that one)
I greatly appreciate any helpful comments you may have. TIA :) !!!
