I've just had good news! It turns out my insurance does cover homebirth after all! Although it remains to be seen if there are any HB midwives in my insurance network. So I'm asking for your help - if you've ever heard of a HB midwife who will go to Queens, I want to know her name!<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Here is the contact info for most NYC HB midwives.<br><a href="http://www.nyhomebirth.com/newyork.html" target="_blank">http://www.nyhomebirth.com/newyork.html</a><br>
I think most will work in Queens. I live in Queens and will be birthing with Kristen in August.

They all cover Queens. I did a birth with Miriam this morning and she is wonderful. My own homebirth was with Marcy Tardio (718-788-9131) and I could not recommend her more. I adore Tioma, who is not listed in the link posted above - Tioma Allison (917-497-3529).<br><br>
In the end it depends a lot on availability and personality. Depending on when you are due (if it is soon, you'll have a harder time finding someone) and what works with you in terms of style and personality. I know several of the midwives and for me I knew Marcy was perfect (and Tioma would have been great too but i did not know her until I did someone else's birth with her).<br><br>
Good luck finding the right person!

I totally agree. She is exactly what I want in a midwife. I recommend her to anyone.
