  4. Homebirth
    I am 22 weeks pregnant and currently under care of an MD. I would greatly prefer to have a homebirth, and am learning that my out of pocket expense at a hospital, after insurance, will still be nearly $6000, so I am hesitant to pay $5000 for a homebirth midwife and then possibly have to go to...

    I think it's important to start here: Labor is hard, intense work. No, wait. I think it's more important to start here: Women are amazing. And, labor is hard, intense work. And, whatever way a woman decides to bring a child into the world should be respected and, frankly, commended - because it...
