Have you looked into CPMs? I don't know what area you're in, but my fee is high at $2800. A 4 bedroom, 2000 square foot house (not new development) runs around $180,000 here, to give you an idea of where we sit economically.

CNMs are typically higher in fees because they have spent more money in their education and they are required in most states to carry (very expensive!) malpractice insurance. A CPM has less overhead and doesn't carry malpractice insurance, so the fee might be less, if you're in a state where CPMs are practicing.

Let us know how the meetings with the midwives go, and if any other options come up!
