I went through the same thing with my fifth pregnancy. I could not imagine laboring and at the same time having to be "on guard". Most midwives are willing to work with you, and many will even barter all or part of their fee. My mw back in AL charged $1900 for everything- prenatals, attending the birth, and checkups afterwards. I do know she arranged with one couple to have a video of their waterbirth made in lieu of payment... she then used that video as preparation for other couples. Most of them are very flexible, and committed enough to their calling that they WANT to see your homebirth happen for you, and will work with you.

Anyway, I really hope you find a way to make it work out.
