Hi,<br><br>
My name is Carren. I currently have one daugther who is 3 years old. I am now pregnant (almost 16 weeks) with my second. Not sure if we are to find out the sex or not. I'm currently seeing an ob but would like to switch to a midwife. Thinking about a homebirth but I think I might be too chicken and too poor to do it.<br><br>
ETA: My due date is Aug 4th<br><br>
: ) Carren

Hey Caren! Have you read Ina May Gaskin's Guide to Childbirth?? I found it really inspiring (says the gal with 2 C/S). I've heard a lot of people talk about the cost of a midwife-attended homebirth, and, not to be tacky, but what do they run (and I'm guessing insurance won't cover)?

Welcome to the club!<br><br>
We're having cost-of-homebirth-midwife issues ourselves. Still trying to figure out what is most important to us. From what I have heard, there are quite a few insurance companies that will cover some if not all of the cost!<br><br>
Anyway, nice to have you here!
