I'm becoming more and more convinced that this is the option for me. I contacted a woman on Mothering.com who replied to my post and she said the midwives charge around $800-1500, which is much better than I expected! We were going to have to pay over $1000 out of pocket for the birth center, so we were prepared to pay around that amount anyway. She also mentioned that at least a few of the midwives she knows do waterbirths. It's such a relief that things are starting to come together. I was worried I would end up having to drive 2 hours to the birth center to get the birth I wanted. The hospital doesn't sound all that bad, but a home birth is much more appealing to me. I'm sure I'll be back through the pregnancy with more questions, thanks ladies!
