I'm wondering if such a person even exists. The more I read, the more I find out that Medicaid won't cover midwifery care outside of a hospital, but others tell me to keep looking around. Does anyone know any midwife who may accept Medicaid that does home births? I've been in kind of a slump about this as my situation is not very great (the only thing I look forward to is my little daughter) and I don't see a way I'll be able to cover a home birth by myself...and hospitals terrify me, so I want to avoid them at all costs! Thanks
*****I just wanted to update this for anyone looking for similar information.
Thank you, inaweofmommyhood, for giving me Dinah Waranch's name, as I spoke to her and she informed me that there are only 3 midwives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that happen to accept Medicaid for home birth services. She *is* one of them. She also gave me Jean Sala's name at the Inanna Birth Center. I'm not sure who the third one is, but she was located somewhere to the south of Dallas, which was a bit too far for me so I didn't have any further inquiries.
I hope this was beneficial for someone else as well.*****
