Homebirth Services and Fees

Initial consultation. A free, no-obligation, one-hour long interview. This is your opportunity to ask me anything about home birth and my midwifery practice, and for me to share with you how I work in concert with you. In most cases, it is best if your partner or main birth support person also attends. My practice is inclusive and supportive of ALL families.

My comprehensive package fee is $5000.00. $6000.00 for families who choose to have all prenatal care in home. A $500.00 retainer is required to begin care with the balance due and paid by 36 weeks of pregnancy.   I accept cash, PayPal, Venmo, and credit card or HSA card payments (via Square) and offer flexible monthly payment plans, as well as sliding scale options for a limited number of families with financial need, so please talk to me about payment options. Midwives work long hours and do deserve to be well paid for their skilled work, but we can often work something out that makes home birth possible.  I am also open to discussing equitable barter for goods and services. 

This practice is not in-network with any insurance companies. While all Midwifery Services must be paid in full, prior to birth, verification-of-benefits (VOB) and insurance billing for out-of-network coverage is available via Birth Professional Billing, a billing company specializing in out-of-hospital care.  Billing is submitted only after your birth and postpartum care is fully completed, and it is possible that you will be reimbursed, by your insurance company, in part or full, on an out-of-network basis (results not guaranteed and are dependent upon your individual insurance company, as well as deductibles and specific insurance plans). There is a fee for this service, based upon actual reimbursement amounts. 

There are no discounts for late entry into care, as this often requires MORE work, and more in-depth prenatal visits, in a shorter period of time, in order to provide safe and healthy home birth care. All labs, tests, and midwifery care recommendations are offered on the basis of informed choice or refusal, but declining included care does not reduce the global cash fee for midwifery care, unless expressly stated. More information is located in my services contract & financial agreement.
