In Tucson I'm pretty sure the birth center does, don't know about Phoenix


Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

The birth center definitely does- I had my son there in 2009 and I had AHCCCS. We ended up paying a few hundred dollars out of pocket for all the prenatal care and birth. I think they would be your best/cheapest option.

 

I'm using a home birth midwife this pregnancy, and she gave me a $400 discount because I'm still on AHCCCS. If you want her contact info, PM me and I'd be happy to share it.

Mama,
Check out Nurturing Hearts Birth Services in Mesa.  Stephanie is a homebirth midwife, and while I don't know if she accepts AHCCCS I do know that she or one of the doulas who works with her can give you a referral to a provider who is natural birth friendly in Mesa.  Google her, and you'll find her contact info :)

Oh sorry, I didn't realize you were in Mesa. There are tons of home birth midwives in the Phoenix area, plus several birth centers. If you can't find someone who takes AHCCCS, I bet you can find someone willing to work with you on a payment plan.
