Kemi wife to Jeff mommy to Rohan 1/3/09 and Naren(transfer to hospital) 10/22/10. Pregnant with
****5****10****15****20****25****30****35***40 (Hospital BC w/CNMs due to GD)
I just found out we're expecting #3. It's a huge shock...we don't have insurance atm and were not planning on expanding our family anytime soon but obviously other plans were made for us.
I had already decided after my sons birth (at Holy Cross Hospital) that if I had another I would look into a homebirth. DH isn't crazy about the idea but he'll come around.
What can we expect to pay? We're in Frederick.
Also...if anyone has any recommendations for a midwife I would love to contact you off the board.
Thank you all for the replies!
Unfortunately we don't qualify for MCHIP...we don't meet the income requirements anymore. My kids were enrolled in it but DH made too much last year so after they saw last years tax returns we were denied. DH's business is WAY down this year but they won't even consider it.
I haven't met with any midwife yet...I spoke to one and am waiting to hear back from another so hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be all set.
I would call and speak to someone at the program specifically and tell them your current situation. If that does not work then call the constituent services office of your State Delegate and explain that you are having to go without prenatal care because the MCHIP folks are unwilling to look at your current financial situation. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised. Call Evelyn's office and tell Wendy that Lorrie Leigh asked you to tell her who to call to discuss this at the state level. I really do believe you can qualify. The rules get easier when you are pregnant. The state is working hard to make sure that no MD woman goes without prenatal care.
