I had my first daughter with Kay Johnson and it was amazing. This time around I wanted a home birth but had a hard time finding any information on home births so I went back to Kay and I am now 28 weeks pregnant. I have been having some insurance issues so I looked back into home birth and have found more information than the first time. Can anyone point me in the direction of a midwife who would take me on so late? Also how much do home births usually cost in Ga?

Most local midwives charge around $3K, but I think they'll usually pro-rate that for any pre-natal visits you wouldn't need since you're well into your pregnancy. I would think most of them would take you at 28 weeks, but you probably just have to call and ask.<br><br>
This practice is on your side of town: <a href="http://www.gamidwife.com/team2.html" target="_blank">http://www.gamidwife.com/team2.html</a><br><br>

Good luck! Keep us posted on what you decide.

Thank you! I have already emailed the midwives at gamidwives.com but I have yet to hear back from them. I think they are a great option for me because they are literally seven miles from my house. I wish they had a number I could call because I have been checking my email like a crazy person to see if either midwife has responded. lol.

I third Beth!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
She delivered my last baby and I am planning another birth with her this December. She is so sweet to me even though I am a not-so-crunchy mom.

Fourth vote for Beth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
We Birthing Way families just love Beth...everyone teased me when I was pregnant because I couldn't stop talking about how wonderful my midwife was! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> She really is amazing. I had the most wonderful homebirth...I am SO not ready to have another baby yet, but I keep thinking I should just so I can have prenatals with Beth again. My prenatals were better than therapy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<p>WOW! Thanks everyone for posting on Beth! I just set up a consult with her (I'm only 4 weeks). This will be my first homebirth out of 3. I'm nervous of course, but this makes me feel better.</p>

<p>Angela, congrats on your pregnancy. I am in the same boat as you. I'm due late October & looking for a HB Midwife and i was very curious on the price. My last HB in Western Pa my insurance paid for it (it was prorated because i didn't switch care over until i was 28 weeks). This time i will have to pay out of pocket. GL !!!</p>

<p>We're paying about $3,000 for our homebirth in a few weeks. That seems to be pretty average in Atlanta.  This does not cover ultrasounds/labwork if you need or want those services; thankfully, we have insurance that covers most of those costs.  Many midwives will also provide you with a superbill so that you can try for some reimbursement after the birth.  </p>

<p>Hi,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I delivered with gamidwives in 2009. I would recommend them to anyone. I had an awesome experience after I switched to them at 29 weeks. Try this number <span style="color:rgb(34,34,34);font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:small;white-space:nowrap;">(770) 381-2339.</span></p>
<p> </p>
