What is the cost of midwifery care (with plans for a home birth)?
The cost of care in 2024 ranges from $6800 – $7400.
A $500 deposit is due upon entering care before your first appointment.
Multiple, flexible payment plans that work with most budgets are available, and we are happy to discuss finances with everyone.

Do you accept insurance?
No, insurance is not accepted for care.  That said, we encourage EVERYONE to call their insurance company and ask about out-of-network coverage.
Insurance CAN be used for labs and ultrasounds.

If you have an FSA/HSA, you can also use those funds to pay for your care!
If you want to change insurance and it fits your values, I recommend discovering a healthcare share plan such as Samaritan, Christian Ministries, and Zion Health Share.

I would HIGHLY suggest working with a biller to get reimbursement which most people have success with.

Are there any extra fees besides the cost of care?  
Yes. You will need to purchase a birth kit, which ranges from $100 to $150, depending on what extra supplies you may need (extras for a water birth).
Additional supplies you will need are likely found in your household supplies.

The cost of care does not include labs or ultrasounds, doula care, or lactation support beyond the first couple of days postpartum. Please check with your insurance company on coverage for these services.

Do you rent birth tubs?
We offer birth tubs to our clients to borrow,  for free!  We will supply you with an air pump, drain pump, and pool.  You will need to order the liner, hose, and hose adapter with your birth kit.

What if I can’t afford care?
We absolutely recognize that this type of care does not come easy for most people.
We are always open to discussing where you are and what you have to work with and creating a plan to get to the end.  Planning before pregnancy is best, as well as allocating funds each week to your care.  Have a skill to barter?  We are open to it!
Also, if you are having a baby shower, sprinkle, blessing way, etc., ask your guests to contribute funds vs. gifts and hit up your closest consignment shop for your newborn needs.

Can I transfer in from another care provider?
Yes, you can!  If you are unhappy in your care and your values align with midwifery care, AND your risk assessment shows you are a candidate for an out-of-hospital birth, then it’s an option!  Once we have agreed to work together, you can have your current provider transfer over your records, and we will pick up from there.  If you have risk factors that don’t fit with home birth but would like to have midwifery care, we can discuss co-care with your current provider.  Co-care is NOT designed as a way to afford

How do you manage bleeding at birth?
Bleeding occurs at every birth.  We watch it closely for hours and the days after.  If bleeding is in excess, we will offer the least invasive, most natural methods to help it stop first but will go to more mainstream alternatives that are also offered in the hospital setting to help.  At times, if bleeding isn’t controlled in a timely fashion, we may summon EMS to come and be on standby in case we need increased support.  It’s a rare event, but sure, it does happen.

Do you train in newborn resuscitation?
Yes!  I and the midwife who attends with me are trained in adult and infant resuscitation and carry resuscitation equipment to ensure everyone is safe.  Current training/recert April 2024.

What if there is an emergency?
If there is a situation out of our scope or that requires more hands and additional skills, we summon EMS and/or transfer to the hospital.  We carry a lot of equipment and supplies that are rarely used but are there to handle most emergencies.  We can dig through my bags together.  This is NOT homebirth at all costs; this is midwifery care with great intentions to have a baby at home.
We invest in continuing education and skills practice in birth emergencies often.

Do you bring support with you?  What is their skill set?
Yes!  I have at least one support person with me at your birth.  My right-hand woman is also a midwife so you get a two midwife team in most cases.
