Hi! I've had a natural birth and am planning my first homebirth. I had an opinion question for you...

My midwife charges insurance and then a separate $2400 fee. If you deliver too fast and she isn't there for the birth but comes later to care for you and the baby, she still keeps all of the money you pay her for the homebirth. Is this normal and do you agree with it?

DH is a stingy fella and he feels that if this happens, we should be able to get at least some of the money back whereas I am torn because I feel it's a cost I'm paying to choose homebirth.
