Fees

The fee for home birth midwifery services is $4,500. This includes prenatal care, 24 hour call throughout pregnancy, attendance of birth by me and an assistant, postpartum care and newborn visit. At first initial prenatal visit a down payment of $500 will be collected for care which in non-refundable and then a payment plan set up to be paid in full by 36 weeks. Lab work, ultrasounds, and primary care visits are not included in fee and would be billed separately.

It is important to me that women have access to midwifery care, so if there are financial hardships I will do everything in my power to make prices reasonable for your family. Please let me know at our initial consultation visit and we will discuss.

Financial Assistance

I am interested in making home birth and a midwife available to all families and I will make a reasonable attempt to serve families who need financial assistance. Please address at consult visit.

Insurance

Most insurance companies that have maternity cover nurse-midwives and home birth services. I will help you determine what your insurance will pay and will bill them for you. An estimate of your portion that insurance does not pay will be collected at 36 week visit. Insurance would also help to pay for labs, ultrasounds, or other needed primary care services during your pregnancy.

Travel

A travel fee is incurred for births outside the Casper, Wyoming area. A one-time fee will be incurred, payable by 36 weeks. This fee is one-time mileage from my office to your house multiplied by $5. Insurance does not pay for this fee.
