I would start by asking the midwives in your area what insurances tend to work with them. Mine is Aetna and they are kind of known for being against homebirth...so I am going to have to have my midwife just word it as "prenatal and postpartum care" I'm not sure if she can label anything else on there...so they'll pay for SOME of it but not tons...The rest will be out of pocket.

If you do ask your insurance yourself...I'd keep the word "homebirth" out of it until you hear THEIR stance on it so they done deny anything in the future...I'm overly cautious though...You could ask "what kind of midwifery services do you cover" or something....

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
