We are expecting #3, and I was lucky to give birth to my second in a very family friendly hospital in Maine that discharged me the same day (no hassle, and NOT AMA). It was a water birth, with a midwife, and was totally awesome.
We just moved back to Mass, and I'm bummed about my options. I want a homebirth, I'll say that, but I cannot afford it. We literally *just* paid off the $ from the birth of my second (since my insurance sucked, to say the least, the deductible was atrocious -- does any plan in the Commonweath Care program cover homebirths?).
I've read great things about Tobey - has anyone birthed there and been able to leave right after (a few hours, etc), with no fuss? There is no way I'm staying in a hospital for 2 days after a natural birth... I know it's genereally up to the care provider, and assuming I go this route we are looking into Louise...
