If your insurance doesn't cover a homebirth midwife you might consider asking her what she would charge for birth only. That way you could see an OB, discontinue care whenever you feel the need and only use your MW for birth. Some MW's will do this others won't. I have a lay midwife who is my backup in case baby is breech and she will only charge for the birth if she attends. It's a lot cheaper to have her on and have insurance pay for an OB.
