So, my hubby and I recently found out we're expecting, and I've always wanted a midwife instead of a dr. I was trying find one in our network so we wouldn't have to deal with drama over insurance, but the one covered in our area (eastern VA), is in a huge practice with 5 other doctors and they told me when I got to the appointment (they should have over the phone in my opinion) that I *will* see all the doctors and they have no idea who will deliver (I don't even think an effort is made to have your preferred one deliver)....so I am looking into other midwives in the area, and if we're going that rout, I'd love a home birth.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to get the process started/any tips or certain things I need to do.
I called today to ask if a home birth is covered and since it's not mentioned specifically in our plan (A PPO I think) the lady was going to check with my hubby's employment company to see if it was covered and she's supposed to call me back by 5 on Wednesday.
Any help would be great!
