Maternity care that honors your mind, body & spirit.

The Midwives Model of Care™ is a fundamentally different approach to pregnancy and childbirth than contemporary obstetrics. I support the 'Midwives Model of Care' which is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes. The application of this client-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.   

Midwifery Care

Prenatal Care

 

I provide 45 minute prenatal visits on a regular schedule. This means you have extra time to talk about important topics with me regarding your life, health and wellness. My clients have access to referrals for all the same lab tests, screenings and ultrasounds that are normally recommended for pregnancy.

Birth Options

 

Clients can give birth in the comfort of their own home, using various comfort measures such as waterbirth. I monitor vitals regularly during labor and I’m trained with birth emergency skills for out of hospital settings.

Clients can also give birth at the hospital with an on-call physician. Clients are able to call/text if they have any questions or need support.. 

PP & Newborn

 

I believe that early postpartum care is important for the health and well being of families. I offer a 24-48 hr home visit and 4 office visits, to monitor vitals on mother and baby, help with infant feeding and postpartum recovery. For homebirth clients, I am able to file the birth certificate and do all recommended newborn screenings.

Payment Information

Midwifery service fees can be paid in payments after a $500 deposit, with the remaining due by 36 weeks. If paid all up front I do offer a discount for self-pay clients.

 
INSURANCE billing

 

If you decide you would like to bill your insurance we are able to bill your insurance for you. To verify whether or not your insurance will cover a portion of your midwifery fees, please make sure you bring a copy of your driver's license, insurance card and the primary cardholder's information. 

Well Rounded Momma (where I am an independent contractor) is In-Network with Blue Cross Blue Shield. For all other insurance companies, Midwives are considered an Out-Of-Network Provider. Which means HMO's will not likely cover any midwifery services [including Medicaid, HPN & Tricare].  But, if you have a PPO or POS plan, they might cover a portion of your care.  

Any portion that you are responsible for like deductibles, copays, or coinsurance are required in full by your 36 week visit. ​After your insurance has been billed, client is responsible for any unpaid portion of the $3800 midwifery fee. For home deliveries, we bill a global fee for services after delivery.
