When we found out we were going to have another baby, we started slowly saving money so that we would be able to pay off the birth in advance. Many midwives give a discount if paid in full by 36 weeks. Honestly that's not too far away for us at all!
I called the birth center today and paid in full for the prenatal care and the birth of the baby! What an amazing thing! I am glad that this is one less thing that we have to worry about, and we can start to focus our money on paying off the rest of our debt.
I went into labor with Daphne the day that I made the last payment for her birth, and though I'm definitely not wishing to have this baby early, I'm happy to know that I'm not going to have any more medical bills to deal with after the birth.
