Homebirth Midwife

Many families seek a return to traditional and personalized approaches to their pregnancy and birth care. Prenatal visits, birth, and postpartum support in your home ensure you are more than just a name on a chart, you are known and valued as an equal partner and participant in your process.

Homebirth Service includes complete prenatal care in the comfort of your home (or at the park, beach, or nature trail if you wish!) with visits lasting 30-60 minutes each, wellness counseling, routine diagnostic lab tests, continuous labor and birth support, 3 postpartum visits including lactation counseling, and access to lending library and resources. I utilize nutrition and herbal remedies whenever possible and have access to collaborative providers for consult and pharmaceutical treatments as needed.

The fee for maternity care is $6000. I work with a billing company to assist you with health insurance reimbursement. I am not currently in network with Medicaid or private insurance companies, but I offer a family income based sliding scale to increase access to care. I am open to payment plans, bartering, and other creative compensation solutions for dedicated families.

Prenatal/Postpartum Care provides the same gentle and compassionate home care for families who choose hospital birth due to risk factors or personal preference. This can be provided in conjunction with doula support or a la carte. Please contact me for details.

Doula & Lactation Support

I first began birth work as a doula, and while I build my midwifery practice I am happy to offer doula support for families planning a hospital birth who desire more holistic prenatal counseling and additional postpartum lactation support. Doula service includes a free consultation to determine if we are a good match to work together, phone & email contact during your pregnancy, 2 prenatal visits to listen and discuss your hopes for your experience, provide education and support, continuous labor and birth support from home to hospital, immediate postpartum lactation support, and 2 postpartum home visits to support your family’s transition. Fee for doula support is $1200.

I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor and provide in-home breastfeeding support to families regardless of their birth location or provider. My fee for initial assessment and assistance visit is $70, follow up visits are $30, and include phone/text support.
