I love talking about my Homeb to my hospb friends.
Even more, I love to talk about homeb to families considering it. A couple years ago, I was on the other side of the room asking the same questions that they are, and now my midwife has taken me on as an apprentice.
OOh, my own funny story. I was considering changing ins. carriers during my pregnancy, and was trying to find one that would cover a homeb. Upon asking that question to one ins. co. rep, she switched to her, "I'm spaeking to a simpleton, " voice.
She said, "We can't reimburse any procedure without someone charging for it." What she meant was that, for example, if I cut my leg and stiched it up myself at home, I could not ask for reimbursement for the going rate from my ins.co.
