Luckily, our insurance with DH's current job is much more generous, they paid for over 1/2 if the cost

in Washington, medicaid will cover 100% of a homebirth if you have a state licensed provider (DEM, CPM, CNM, etc...) no questions asked.

Unfortunately the provider I chose is not state licensed (she's a certified professional midwife, just hasn't done her state cert. yet) so I'm paying out of pocket.
