FULL MIDWIFERY SERVICES -- $3,500
 
This includes:
  • all prenatal care, birth, and postpartum visits             
  • assistant's fee
  • pool
  • filing the birth certificate
  • initial prenatal labwork, 28 and 36 week labwork
  • newborn screening labwork
  • professional supplies
  • a health professional on call for you for months
  • availability for questions
  • one-on-one attention during your labor and birth            
  • postpartum care in your home for the first 10 days
  • comprehensive care through 6 weeks postpartum
           
Initial labwork consists of a CBC, WBC, blood type and Rh, VDRL/RPR, antibody screen, rubella titer, hepatitis B, comprehensive metabolic panel and UA. At 28 and 36 weeks, a CBC and comprehensive metabolic are done. Rh negative women will have an additional antibody screen at 28 and 36 weeks.  
 
DISCOUNTS:
$500 discount, $3,000 total, if paid in full by 36 weeks.
 
I will discount my fee if there have been previous prenatal visits with another care provider and I receive copies of those records (including labs).

I do NOT give discounts for coming late in your pregnancy without prior prenatal care.
 
ADDITIONAL CHARGES:
  • Blood type, Rh, and direct Coombs testing on babies of Rh negative mothers.
  • HIV testing
  • Birth location more than 1 hour away (determined by normal driving conditions, legal speed limits, and distance from my home)  
SERVICES OF A PHYSICIAN, NURSE PRACTITIONER, OR OTHER HEALTH CARE PROVIDER (nutritionist, chiropractor, hypnotherapist, childbirth educator, birth doula, postpartum doula, massage therapist, etc.) are NOT included in my fee.
 
I will take payments for the balance above the $350 down.  Payment schedules will be clearly understood by the end of the first prenatal visit.
 
INSURANCE
 
Sometimes insurance companies will reimburse you for my fee at a 70-80% rate. I encourage everyone to file for reimbursement from your insurance company. I will give you the necessary paperwork at your 6 week postpartum visit. Some companies will reimburse you for childbirth education classes.
 
Depending on the policy you have, a hospital birth may cost you as much out-of-pocket as a homebirth, if not more. It runs close to the same because of deductibles and the percentages you have to pay. Hospital births cost between $7,000-$10,000 WITHOUT complications.
