I'm considering a homebirth with the Hackettstown Midwives, well, I guess they're the Midwives of New Jersey now, but anyway, I know my insurance will cover them at an out of network rate but I'm wondering what the other costs are?  If I understand correctly, there is a $500 fee for their backup doctor then the cost of the homebirth kit, the pool liner (I'm definately doing a waterbirth) and the cost of the homebirth class.  Is that everything they require?  How much is the class, kit and liner?  Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Mothering @CCate23! Just wanted to bump your post up to see if anyone has any input to offer. Also, I'd like to invite you to join one your Due Date Club where moms due the same month share their pregnancy, labor and birth experiences and offer each other support and advice.
