just curious if anyone might know...

Because this was a surprise baby (pregnant while using birth control) and our current money situation, I'm likely going to have to get medical coverage through Medicaid. I'm curious if any other moms have been through this and what birth options are available? I really dont want to be in a hospital and would prefer just to have a midwife at a birthing center or even at home. I hate how invasive hospitals are and dont want them trying to push me according to their schedule. I would also prefer a natural birth as I hate the idea of being confined to a bed unable to move around. I know my options are limited more than likely, but I was just curious if that would still be an option? I live in Ohio if that helps. I have looked and midwife services are listed as something that's covered if I read it correctly.

I live in California and it doesnt cover birthing centers. I did a quick google search for Ohio and it doesnt seem to be covered over there either. It will probably cover midwives but if you want to give birth somewhere other than a hospital, you will probably have to pay out of pocket.

So basically if your midwife will do a home birth, I'm possibly covered. I didnt figure they would cover birthing centers.
