Invest in your care
The insurance industry has not changed the rate at which they pay midwifes for at least 15 years. Midwifery care reduces the cost and risk of childbirth but unfortunately the reality is that it is not compensated for.
As a solo midwife, I provide individualized holistic, one on one care.
My goal is to provide this this type of individualized care for years to come.
Booking / Service Fee
The $300 non-insurance covered booking/service fee helps to keep this kind of exemplary care susteainable as a solo practicing midwife. I take care of you and your baby start to finish.
This fee will be due at your first initial appointment. If you need to make payments, we can find a payment schedule that works for you.
This fee supports:
24/7/365 on-call access to your midwife
Appointments times lasting from 30 minutes to 1 hour with collaborative, personalized, decision making which is beyond the time considered payable for routine care by most insurance carriers.
Holistic, natural based approach to health and wellness for you and baby
Individualized care and informed decision making opportunities
Educational materials and resources
Referral support during antepartum/labor/birth/postpartum, as needed
Enhanced newborn and postpartum care
In house labs
You and your family deserve and benefit from the time and attention, characteristic of the midwifery model of care that has been demonstrated to improve outcomes and increase birth satisfaction. Check out a more detailed description of what is included in care.
Most insurance plan benefits cover midwifery care. However, you should always inquire with your health care plan for the most up-to-date information. When contacting your insurance representative, provide my NPI# 1083367148 and Tax ID# 87-4790592
