I am having a homebirth, one way or another lol. I had midwives that were covered by my insurance last time (mostly) but I won't use that practice again. CPMs aren't legal here, and turns out it's more expensive than I thought (not that they deserve less, just...I have no savings) $2500. In 7 months. How in the heck are people with unplanned pregnancies supposed to do this? My husband is looking at having less taxes taken out at work, but other than me getting a job (which isn't very feasible with 2 little kids), how can we afford a midwife at our homebirth, and still buy things like another car seat?
I may just have to go unassisted again, and I hate to make that decision based purely on $$.
