DH and I found out a week ago that we are expecting our second. We're very excited and even more excited that we will be with our midwife group the entire pregnancy. My last pregnancy began with an RE and then to my OB until 20 weeks when we switched to the birth center. BEST DECISION EVER!
We have also talked homebirth and definitely want to interview the midwife who does them in our area (she lives right down the road from me!). Our insurance currently is not considering our birth center in-network so we're going to be paying out of pocket anyway, so I want to consider homebirth at least!
The thing with homebirth in Georgia is that there is some law that prevents midwives from attending homebirths. Something to do with the state law about insurance or something (I can't remember exactly). So they don't have OB backup. That's a question I'll have to ask the homebirth midwife.
But anyways, regardless, it'll be out of the hospital for sure!!!
This was a surprise pg so we have to get ourselves back in gear! Will be fun though as this is one of DH's and my favorite topics
