OH that sucks no w/d! I don't know what I'd do if we had to stop using cloth, I don't think I could figure out a sposie lol. At least you can put the wool over them though

Lisa- I get the heebie jeebies going potty in public!! So I totally sympathize! You should definitely try some cloth. You'll fall in fluffy love


So I got to meet my Midwife today. LOVE her!!! My first "appointment" is the 7th of July She's really awesome and I feel totally comfortable with her. I can't wait for my first appt.!!

For anyone else having a Midwife attended HB do you mind me asking how much it's costing you? I think I'm getting and awesome deal, I just want to compare notes!

Mine will be totally covered by insurance, except for about $50 in supplies that we'll probably have to buy ourselves.

Ahh I wish we could get insurance that good and not pay an arm, a leg, and a few ribs.

Mine is going to cost $1950 total unless we can pay by my second appt. with her in cash. Then it will be $1800. That includes a free 1 hour massage (she's a licensed massage therapist ) and as many ultrasounds as I want! She got a great deal on an ultrasound machine on ebay. So i'm feeling really blessed at the moment!

I am not sure yet - I am fighting with insurance right now. : I *think* it should be all covered. My first actual appt with the mw is end of June so I if she tells me her rates, I'll let you know.

Glad you are getting a great deal.

midwives are currently illegal in my state, so insurance definitely won't cover it. She's charging us $1500.
