Staten Island, Brooklyn, & NYC Homebirths

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi I am in Staten Island, NY and I am looking to have a homebirth sometime in the very near future. I was hoping to get some input on midwives in the area or 5 boroughs  that I could look into. I would love to hear reviews on midwives in the area and your experiences. I would also like some info on insurance and what was covered....thank you

There are no midwives on Staten Island that attend homebirths.  However many of the midwives in the area - Brooklyn, Manhattan, northern NJ will come to SI.  

 

Here's a good place to start

Meeting with the midwives to get a gut feeling for how you'd work together is probably the best way to make a decision, in my opinion.

 

My understanding is that insurance coverage varies greatly depending on your insurance, but the law is on your side in NY.  When you meet with a midwife, she should be able to offer more insight based on your specific situation.

Thank your for your reply and I actually do know of that website! I remember reading people experiences on the different midwives and i cant seem to remember where I did. I liked how the women talked about how their midwives were during labor hands on etc or letting mom be...and I know i read a few that when they interviewed they had a great connection but when it came to the birth it was not what they expected out of the midwife. I would really like to hear personal experiences. Do you have one? Thanks for the heads up on insurances. smile.gif
