We do not accept insurance and we are not in-network with any insurances, however, we can provide you with a receipt or superbill that will list the services you have received as well as corresponding cpt codes once you have paid your homebirth fee in full.
Do you support clients that wish to birth in water?
Absolutely! We are happy to support you if you wish to birth in water. At this time we do not have birth tubs to rent to clients so it would be your responsibility to purchase or rent one in addition to all accompanying parts and supplies. We hope to have one to rent to clients soon!
What if I need to transfer to the hospital?
While our hospital transfer rate is very low, transfers do happen sometimes for various reasons. If we are able to go with you to then hospital, we will transfer with you and act as your advocates while you are there. Unfortunately, we are unable to continue to be your midwives in the hospital setting but we will resume your care once you have left the hospital. If we are unable to to go into the hospital with you we can remain in close contact via the phone.
How is traditional midwifery care different?
Traditional midwifery care is based on a relationship of deep trust between the birthing person and their midwife. We see you, the client, as the expert on your body and your experience. We are here to support you and offer you guidance, when needed but we look to you, as the center of this incredible experience, to lead. We bring our skills and training, our equipment and supplies, our experienced hands and love.
