In the event of transport to a hospital, the full fee applies. We typically maintain postpartum visits and newborn care. In the event of transfer out of care before labor due to a high-risk condition, labor support services are offered for a fee of $500. For women who complete only partial prenatal care with us, the prorated fee is $150. for the initial and home visits and $90. per office visit.

Fees: Please look at our sliding scale fee chart to find your appropriate fee. The fee for midwifery care services during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum is due in full by 36 weeks. At the second prenatal visit, a non-refundable registration fee of $250 is due, and we will outline a payment plan to pay the remainder of the fee. If the fee has not been paid in full by the 36th week, the midwives cannot attend your birth, unless arrangements have been made previously in writing.

Please locate the amount of your total household annual income to the best of your knowledge. This is based on the honor system, not on your tax returns. Take your time to consider all the avenues of revenue. The corresponding amount would be my fee for midwifery care.
