You may already know this as you have already done a lot of research on natural childbirth but figured I would mention it in case your didn't.

I have been talking to Mandi about doula's and hospital procedures more and she contacted her doula regarding some questions that I had. Her doula mentioned that some insurance companies cover the cost of doulas. I had no clue that they would cover something like that! I am going to call today and find out if our plan does.

  • I called and my plan doesn't cover doula services. :(  At least I asked though.

  • Oooh cool!  I wasn't sure if insurance would cover doulas but I was planning on calling to see.  Sorry yours doesn't. :(

    On another note, and you may already know this, but if you want a breast pump, sometimes insurance will cover some of the cost.  I think you have to get a prescription from your OB or something?  I can't remember.  It's worth a call to see, if you are planning on BFing and pumping.

  • I asked about that as well. I figured since I was calling I should ask about anything else I could think of. Turns out my plan would cover one if I was discharged before the baby. So like she had complications and had to stay in the Nicu for awhile.

  • Well, that's better than nothing, but geez.  I hope that doesn't happen. :(

    Oh yeah, there's a Natural Birth board on the Bump now.  Wasn't sure if you'd seen it.

  • Sorry, I'm on a Mac, and apparently it makes no links clicky on here. :/
