Hello everyone, I am new to this site and am hoping to find someone who can help me.  My husband is a freelance photographer, I'm a student, and we've been without insurance for a while now.  When we found out that I was pregnant we signed up for NJ family care, but I find that I am being pushed into having an "on my back" hospital birth.  Is there anyone who knows if I can find a midwife on this insurance plan, or if there is anyway around giving birth in the hospital?  My heart is set on a home birth.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

 

-Fay

Hi there, I'm in the same boat, due in February 2012. Did you ever find an answer to this?

Your insurance provider MUST provide you with names of a home-birth midwife who takes your insurance-- or they will pay for a midwife out of network. This ( I believe is NJ law)

 

Call your provider first and ask for names of Home birth midwives-- if that is unsatisfactory--

call some midwives in NJ. They will help you jump the hoops- they know the ropes - You will be able to find a midwife who will agree to take whatever the insurance will pay them!

 

Let me know how it turns out!
