  • Midwives offer amazing care and usually are a LOT less costly. I highly recommend looking into this. And you can do "Unassisted Pregnancy" (on-your-own prenatal care) for the time being, too. Is this your first baby? Are you high/low risk? How far along are you? And do you have any pressing concerns?

  • can you get on state insurance (medicaid)? i qualified for it only because i was pregnant and it ended 3 months after i had my daughter...

  • I make too much money for medicaid, but thank you for the suggestion. I have found (after looking for hours) some doctors who dont cost an arm and a leg, but now i am just trying to find reviews and such.... oh by the way this is my second pregnancy and im about 3 months. I have a gorgeous 10 month old
