I have not been to the doctor yet, but just took 2 tests yesterday that show positive...yeah!!! I'm 39 and remarried...have a 12 year old son...we are all super excited! Both being self-emp., we don't have maternity insurance...suggestions???

After getting prices from the local hosptals, Baylor Grapevine is over $1600 more than North Hills and over $1100 than Harris Methodish HEB. Does anyone know of a doctor affiliated with either of these 2 hospitals?

What can I do next?

Hi J.! I use Dr. Rost at Grapevine Baylor. He is a great doctor, I had complications and he handled them beautifully. Also, he delivered my cousins baby and she loves to go to him too (she actually gave me his name when I found out that I was pregnant). His office number is ###-###-####, hope this helps.

I have not gone to her, but I have heard incredible things about Dr. Julia Flowers. She can fit you in as a new obstetrical patient, but when I called a few months back as a gynecological patient, I could not get an appt. until 2010! She is on 26 in Colleyville. I do not know about her insurance policies, good luck!

J.,

I would recommend my OB/GYN, although admittedly I do not know his office's deal with insurance . . . his name is Dr. Kerry Neal, and he offices on the first floor of Baylor Grapevine. I would think that, if you explained your situation, that they would either let you know all the financial info right away so you could make an informed decision, or they could recommend another OB in the area who can take you on as a patient.

Congratulations! That is wonderful!

Praying for you,
L. S.

I was in your same shoes a 7 months ago. I ended up using a Dr. in downtown fort worth, but this is what i found out...

baylor grapevine is one of the cheaper hospitals around for delivery.
Dr. New, in grapevine, was recommended to me by a friend and he seems to have great prices, I think there is a discount for self-pay.

you will need to get prices on
Dr. fees
lab work
hospital fees for you
hospital fees for baby

it is alot, but they will break it down into payments for you and they will let you pay the baby's hospital fees after delivery. I would be careful with the "maternity card" that someone had recommended. I checked them out with the better business bureau and they have terrible reviews. just FYI
My advice is to start calling around and check out your prices/options.
Good luck!

I go to Dr. Rost at Baylor Grapevine. I hadn't been to the ob/gyn since I had my daughter, she's 3 1/2. He is so sweet, calm and very gentle. I'm expecting our 2nd baby and I'm in the "over 35" group, but he doesn't make a big deal about it. He's not an alarmist. His nurse is very sweet too. I would highly recommend him.

I use Dr. Mendez. I love him and have been using him for 10+ years. I think you can ask the doctor what their cash rate would be. You may have to put more down up front, but it is worth a try. I had a friend do this becaue of no insurance and it didn't seem like it was very much.
Congrats on the now little one.

J.,

First of all, congratulations!

Be prepared to be referred to as being of "advanced maternal age," like it or not LOL! ;op I know, no fair! I gave birth to twins at age 40, and Dr. Joseph Kilianski delivered them. He is at the same practice as Dr. White who I noticed has been referred to you by a couple of other ladies. Dr. Kilianski specializes in high-risk pregnancies (not that yours is), and I highly recommend him as one who is capable, caring, friendly and with a sense of humor, too. I enjoyed dealing with everyone in his practice, and they were flexible with billing matters when my insurance was being difficult on some issues.

I was with a two-female doc practice when I delivered my son 11+ years ago. They were fabulous...however, my primary doc was pg herself and had her own baby six weeks before I delivered. Her partner delivered my son...she was 5 months pg at the time. They both retired soon after to take care of their own kids, and I had to find somebody else. Also, I must admit that I prefer to not have such a tough time getting an appointment with my doc once I am no longer pg. I have found male OBs (the good ones) to often be more available and more willing to go the extra mile to keep their patients happy (some even take off-hours appointments), because so many of us are flocking to the females these days. Certainly nothing against the qualifications, capabilities or manners of the females! Just another perspective...always good to weigh all the pros and cons before making such a big decision.

Regarding the lack of insurance, I'd call Baylor Grapevine to ask about their pricing options. When I delivered my son at Trinity, they had a special price for paying all at once at the time you leave the hospital (credit cards okay) that was about 1/3 or less of the standard price. Physician's fees of course would be separate.

Anyway, the phone # for North Texas Women's Healthcare Associates is ###-###-####. Good Luck!

I go to Dr. Angela Cope at Women's Integrated Healthcare. All of the doctors in the practice are wonderful and they are all women. Their practice is across the street from Baylor Grapevine which is a wonderful hospital to deliver. Women's Integrated Healthcare has a ob coordinator that will sit down with you at the beginning and go over all the details including the financial end of it. They can set up a payment plan for you. The hospital will do the same.

Hi J.,
You may be eligible for Medicaid for your pregnancy. There are different income requirements for pregnancy medicaid than for regular medicaid. See: http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/medicaid/mc/ClientInformation...

Also, I cannot recommend a midwife highly enough. There are birthing centers in the DFW area, so don't think you'd be stuck in your tub at home. If you have financial concerns relating to your pregnancy, you should know that the "normal" vaginal birth at a hospital with no intervention costs approximately $15,000 - $20,000. Midwives in our area charge $2,800 - $3,500 for all of your prenatal and postnatal (up to your 6 week check-up) care. There may be a small charge for an extra ultrasound, but I didn't pay any extra for my son's pregnancy.

I had a certified nurse midwife who had 19 years experience as a labor and delivery nurse in hospitals. If you have questions, feel free to contact me directly at [email protected]____.com luck!

J., Congratulations! North Texas Women's Healthcare, they are in Baylor Grapevine when you go in the main entrance, if you can't get an appointment with Dr. White, I see several have recommended him try Dr. Vaughan. (I've heard the front desk on the phone with new patients saying that Dr. White is generally booked 30-45 days out.) I like Dr. Vaughan a lot. Dr. White released me from the hospital when my son was born and he's great too. My good friend goes to Dr. Neal also in Baylor Grapevine, just across the hall from North Texas Women's Healthcare and she likes Dr. Neal a lot too. As far as insurance, I'm not sure. But good luck!

We meet at the Mega Market...Congrats on your wonderful marriage and pregnancy! Your story sounds familiar to mine. I would strongly recommend going to Plano Presbyterian. I know it would be a bit of a drive but so worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Randall Burt. He's an incrediable man that specializes in pregnancies "spaced" like your and mine was....

Tell him your a friend of ours. I know a couple other ladies I sent to him that were also self employed. They were happy with the arrangments. His number is ###-###-####.

You can get Maternity Card which will give you a discount on your pregnancy costs and they will give you a list of who will accept the card. It's what I'm using, not great but I think it's the bset those of us un-insured can do. http://www.maternitycard.com/form1.asp?source=0C0K02-sear...
