  • Any office that takes Medicaid will take you. Most docs take Medicaid. The office can even help you get signed up for it.

  • There are clinics that work on a sliding fee scale. I know that Barnes Jewish in St. Louis is one of them. Check around in your local area.

  • check around for home birth midwives :) i really wanted one, but i do have insurance so it will cost me a lot more to have a home birth midwife. you could end up paying like $2000-$4000 total for all prenatal care and birth, and have a wonderful experience.
