Not sure about that area, but where I'm at they are about $600. The highest I've heard them go is about $1200, but that's in highly populated areas like New York City or LA.
If $$ is an issue for you, try seeing if you can find a student who needs births for her certification. I used a student for my 2nd birth and she was wonderful. Students can not charge you, so they are free :)
