CNM can submit claims to medicaid, but I'm having trouble finding one that will. Austin birthing center will, but I'm really gunning for a homebirth. we canceled our husband's insurance after his vasectomy, and now we are without coverage... I would pay out of pocket, work three jobs, sell a kidney before I would ever give birth in a hospital again. We ended up having an unplanned unassisted birth, becuase we were trying to stay home as long as possible before going to the hospital. It ended up being an amazing birth. I really am not familiar with the midwife scene in Austin, help? suggestions?
