I am in Duarte, but very familiar with the OC area as that's where I grew up. Thank you!

sue gill w/ blessed beginnings midwifery is awesome, and she does take some insurances.
do you have an hmo or ppo? that will make all the difference of whether or not they even *may* cover a hb mw.
Crunchy wife to my high-school sweetheart, mama to DS (10/23/05) , DS (11/22/07) , DD (3/9/10) , and DS (5/26/12), and three babies in Heaven.
I used BJ Snell at Beach Cities Midwifery in Laguna Hills and loved her to pieces. She is a CNM.

Dr Shaun Grady in Sierra Madre is supportive of all of the above (& VBAC!). He has privileges at Arcadia Methodist. He is the local midwife back up OB.
But I assume you don't want to drive from Duarte to UCLA during labor so you might consider searching some of the yahoo ap groups/babywearing groups too.
