Hi I am in Staten Island, NY and I am looking to have a homebirth sometime in the very near future. I was hoping to get some input on midwives in the area or 5 boroughs  that I could look into. I would love to hear reviews on midwives in the area and your experiences. I would also like some info on insurance and what was covered....thank you

 

Kathleen

There are no midwives on Staten Island that attend homebirths.  However many of the midwives in the area - Brooklyn, Manhattan, northern NJ will come to SI.  

 

Here's a good place to start

Meeting with the midwives to get a gut feeling for how you'd work together is probably the best way to make a decision, in my opinion.

 

My understanding is that insurance coverage varies greatly depending on your insurance, but the law is on your side in NY.  When you meet with a midwife, she should be able to offer more insight based on your specific situation.

Thank your for your reply and I actually do know of that website! I remember reading people experiences on the different midwives and i cant seem to remember where I did. I liked how the women talked about how their midwives were during labor hands on etc or letting mom be...and I know i read a few that when they interviewed they had a great connection but when it came to the birth it was not what they expected out of the midwife. I would really like to hear personal experiences. Do you have one? Thanks for the heads up on insurances. smile.gif
