Yes I'm in the states, some states/insurances from what I understand will cover a home birth, but others don't and I'm not sure why that is. My current insurance will cover hospital fees in full and I'm very fortunate that I found a birth center that will also be covered in full. I'll have to drive 30 min-1 hour to and from but I'd much rather do that then deal with the closest hospital.
