I am very frustrated because my insurance will not cover the midwife that we have decided to see. They of course, will not cover ANY midwives. More than anything I want to have an at home water birth. There are many reasons for this. However, I am really nervous about the cost of the delivery. THe midwife charges a fee of $4400 for all the prenatals, delivery and 6 weeks of post delivery appointments. She is very understanding and will take payments. My insurance for out of network has a $2000 deductible and will then pay 50%.
I called the local hospital to find out the average cost of a vaginal birth delivery witout complicationd and they told me $4000 roughly. My insurance would pay 30% off the delivery after a $1000 deductible if we delivered at the hospital. But I don't want to have the baby in the hospital.
Anyone else feeling financial worries?
