I just had a healthy baby boy in April of this year. I delivered at the hospital but would like to plan on a home birth for the next baby. Please share with me your experiences. I am also curious to the costs. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have insurance through Kaiser. I know that my insurance will not cover any of the costs and it would be 100% out of pocket. I am planning toward the future. My costs at Kaiser for labor and delivery were just shy of $3,000. I was induced, in labor for 4 days and a bit of a science experiment. I regret the experience, but very thankful for my healthy baby. I'm really hoping to have the natural birthing experience next time around. Thank in advance!
