Is that even a correct term "homebirth-ers"? LOL

So I'm in Chicago, & I'm trying to find a good place to go. I've called A Woman's Place - I've even heard good things about them from people who have never used them or lived in Chicago, so I'm hoping my first attempt will be the right one.

Also, I found the price from exactly 1 year ago, 3900$ total, 3100$ if paid by 28 weeks. They said its a global fee - so is it the same cost across the U/S?

& what about U/S'? Do they require you to get one, I noticed they said it does NOT include U/S's or lab work.

I'm also not from Chicago, although I wish I was! I love love love Chicago! DH grew up there, and I've always dreamed of moving there. But, for several reasons, we got stuck in Ohio. It happens LOL We talk about moving to Naperville when the kids get older. It's hard for me to be far from my family so we're taking baby steps.. right now we live three hours from them, so I think if I can handle this then the next move could be to the chicago area, which is about six hours... or eight, depending on who's driving LOL

Anyway, I also wanted to let you know that my the contract I have with my midwife also says "Does not include lab fees or ultrasounds" and she does not require them, but she will write orders for them if we want. Most insurance covers that stuff as long as you have orders for it. The only problem I had with insurance was scheduling the u/s, but that wasn't even with the insurance, that was just the hospital being stupid and my insurance would only cover it if I went to the hospital to have it done. The insurance paid for it though; I just always call ahead to make sure whatever clinic I am going to for tests etc (I have to have my blood taken every two weeks) accepts my insurance

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!
