We just found out that the midwife is charging us $700 less than we originally thought. Really good news in light of the fact that we now need a new (to us) car.
I told someone the other day how much we had to pay for the home birth (when I still thought it was going to be $2600) and she told me that was how much her birth had cost even with insurance. Made me feel not so irritated that the insurance won't cover it. I'm feeling even better now that it's less that $2000!
