Hi ladies, i lurk this board quite often hehe but since i didn't do homebirth with any of the 3 kiddos i never felt right about posting here. But anyway fast forward hehe I just found out that we are expecting #4 and we are planning a homebirth this time around. Im really excited about it, i've been in touch with a midwife here and she seems so nice, i actually get to meet her Thursday!! Im due May 26th, and just hoping that things go great, i have a history of losses. Oh i guess i should say my name too hehe. Im Denise im 25 DH is Chris whos 28. We have 3 beautiful children, Isis(5) Athena(4) and Thayden(9 1/2 months). DH is in the US Navy and were stationed in San Diego CA.


I look forward to meeting everyone

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.

Nice to meet you! My husband is Army and we just moved away from San Diego to NOrth Carolina...eww. I miss it a ton! There are so many great resources in SD! Have you been to baby frenzy? Its a wonderful natural parenting store at the Happy Hiney Cloth Diaper factory in El Cajon. Love it. There are also some awesome Babywearing meetings there! I have a couple friends who have birthed at Best Start and loved it!

Tricare Standard is covering 40% of my homebirth..how about you?

Not to thread hijack here, but are you AD Army? If so, you might want to contact Tricare. Even on Standard, they are supposed to cover 100% of Prenatal, birth and PP care. This INCLUDES homebirth, hospital birth, or birthing center. You are supposed to pay the first 15/20% (depending on if you are using standard or extra) at the first appt, then everything is supposed to be covered at 100% as long as the midwife is board certified AND a CN-M. If your midwife meets these requirments your homebirth should be covered at 100%, and if not they should be covering all but 15/20% (again depending on if you are using extra or standard) and even then if you hit the $1000 during your pregnancy everything should be covered 100% after that point.

Yes they told me that it was covered 100%, were still in the first processes of seting things up finding the right midwife and stuff but when i called they said it was covered 100% because i was an AD spouse

REally???? I will have to check and see. My midwife deals mostly with Army wifes so i figured she would know. What is AD Army? My midwife is a CNM.

AD is active duty. Call the tricare information line or go to your local tricare office. They are supposed to cover 100% of all maternity (minus the first 15% at your first visit) even on standard. I actually found out due to a co-worker of dh's wife was pg. and planning a HB and told us tricare was covering 100%. She had to do some poking to get the right way to file it. It all depends on how the CNM files it to determine how much is covered also Reserve/Guard tricare standard covers a different amount.

Good to know. I emailed my CNM to ask her about it. Im not sure what NC laws are for midwifery so that might play a part in why she told me they only cover 40%?
