If I want to birth at the birth center and go to the birth center for all prenatals: $1800 plus lab fees (and I think I still have to order a birth kit...hmmm, might need to ask her about that!)
If I want a homebirth but will go to birth center for prenatals: $2400 plus labs and supplies
If I want a homebirth outside of a 50 mile radius and will go to birth center for prenatals: $2400-$3000, depending on how far she'll have to drive
If I want all home visits (isn't it cool that you have that option with a MW?): $3000-$3500, depending on how far I live.
I think we'll be going for the birth center with me traveling for all of the prenatals just b/c I'm in LA and she's in TX and it's not legal for her to practice over here (yet). Even if she does become licensed, I think I want my baby to be born in Texas, not Louisiana (call me a snob
but I'm a native Texan as is my husband and even if we're only 20 miles from the border of Texas, this certainly ISN'T home for us!)
