we aint got none.
for real. heres why i am mad.
i am hoping to have a home birth. if i have no risk factors contraindicating it.....so, i have made and appt with a liscensed midwife (LMs are completely and utterly legal in this state) for a consult....i am trying to get my homework done....i call my insurance company, Great West Healthcare (great my ass) to see what their coverage is....the midwife i have picked out "isnt a participant under our health care plan, therefore you will have to find somebody else"....gah. what the lady on the other end of the phone really meant was "damn girl, you so crazy, you must get yourself a Cert. Nurse Midwife, cuz girl, we dont cover that other shit!"
basicly, they dont cover any one that is not a certified nurse midwife.....and there arnt any in this area that will do a home birth. dudes, oregon freakin health plan covers liscensed midwives....and i make too much money to qualify for that! how is that freakin fair! baaaah.
if any of you have any idears, post them...this is kinda important to me...and i feel like my freedom to choose is being ablated by a freakin insurance company.....
