How do I get Started?I would love to meet you and join in on your birth day preparations. What that looks like: Call to set up a consultation. If you decide to establish care with us, fill out the contact form here, send us an e-mail or give us a call. I’ll send you a link to create your online portal so you can fill out your history and sign consents online. Make your initial appointment where we will get to know you, review your history, and draw initial labs. Monthly appointments until 28 weeks. At the 20 week mark, you will get your in depth ultrasound study with our maternal fetal medicine specialist that will ensure you and baby are on track for a healthy birth. At 28 weeks labs again, then we start every 2 week visits. Starting at 36 weeks we will schedule weekly visits until the birth. We will join you once you are in active labor and stay with you until both you and your baby have enjoyed a meal and are ready to be tucked into bed. We will continue to see you and the baby for 3-4 times in the first six weeks after birth.
Do you accept insurance for midwifery services?I currently do not accept insurance to cover home birth deliveries. After birth, an itemized receipt will be provided for clients to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement or credit towards deductibles. You should call your insurance companies to confirm that your plan has “out of network” benefits. This is required to receive reimbursement from insurance companies. I do offer competitive rates for my services and individualized payment plans. I will take a deposit at your initial visit and work out the remainder to be paid over the duration of your care. Contact my biller for more information.
Do I still need to see my doctor?No, you don’t! Because we are recognized as national healthcare providers, we are able to order and interpret everything we need to in order to monitor your pregnancy! If it becomes necessary, we have a consulting physician and collaborate with a Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor for evaluation.
Can my children, friends, or family members attend appointments with me and be at the birth?"A spouse as well as one additional person is welcome at appointments. Doulas are encouraged at birth, along with spouse and a maximum of two other individual supports. I do not recommend, or encourage, a crowded birth.
