does insurance cover homebirth support?
that's a complicated question. many insurance companies will reimburse for home birth services. but how much and how long will it take? i do NOT bill insurance and would say don't expect to be reimbursed. my hope is that paying up front allows you to budget accordingly, without being surprised by a bill months or years after the birth of your baby.
