Anybody have a UC in Houston? I have four kids and am expecting my fifth, God willing. I had my last three at home with a midwife in CA covered by insurance. But my DH was laid off and we moved back to Htown. I want a home birth but funds are extremely tight. I was playing with the idea of a UC because my labors are usually fast (1-3 hours) and I pretty much squat or stand. I've never used a tub (no time). Any thoughts? Any recommendations for very affordable midwives (like under $2500)? I have medicaid but abhor the idea of going to a hospital for labor!
Hi there! I know many UCers in the area, perhaps you all could create a UC support group if you choose to go that route? ;-)
OTOH, Darlene Scrivner is REALLY close to your budget, and she has a scholarship program that might put her right in your budget: http://www.biobirths.com/home-birth-scholarships.html
Feel free to pm me if you want to talk more or if you want me to get you in contact with some of those gals.
