I want a midwife!!!! Because I want a waterbirth. I went to see one today and she made me feel very comfortable and she explained everything. I think it would be an amazing trade off to what I will be getting if I see an OB. And I'm esp worried about that because she said that most of the OBs around here are horrible when following birthing plans. They don't care what the mother wants and only does what they want. That pisses me off even to hear that. So the only thing is I'm on medicaid and I know it'll pay for everything. A midwife's fee is $3,300. Which is a lot for two college students. But she said she doesn't mind how we pay for it or whatever we can do it however it'll fit with our budget. Well, I was telling my MIL about it and she was like it sounds great and all but money is tight and you and (my fiance) have a lot to think about.....
I get so annoyed hearing that. I know what I want. And I just want some support. My parents are even willing to help. Idk why his parents haven't offered to help with anything at all. This was an unexpected pregnancy so my parents are even willing to help pay for our rent!! Anyways, what direction should I go...midwife or OBGYN? Bc of the money.
