My hubby graduates from school in December. We'd planned to get a job and move to Grass Valley or Nevada City. Then we got pregnant with baby #5 who is due in February. Now I'm not sure what to do. We currently live in Utah where homebirthing costs a fraction of what it costs in California so I'm wondering if we should try to stick around for a few more months. I'm not sure how it will work to transfer care at the end of the pregnancy--anyone have experience with that? I'm researching midwives in the Grass Valley/ Nevada City area to see how fees would work and whether they'd take me on so late in the game, but I feel like I'm going in blind since I don't know anyone to get references from. Then I thought to ask here! So who do you gals know and love for homebirthing in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area?
On a side note, my hubby will be graduating with a master's degree in Civil Engineering. Anyone know of any job leads within a reasonable commute? It's a long shot, but I thought I'd ask.
