Fees / Services
When it comes to being able to afford your prenatal/birth/postpartum care, a Licensed Midwife is a great option. My fee is approximately 70% less than what prenatal care with an OBGYN, and delivery in a hospital setting would cost you, so you can afford to receive quality care that is personalized to you. I also offer discounts and payment plans, and am accepted by most major insurance plans, to further minimize the stress on your checkbook. Please feel free to contact me for specifics regarding package pricing and discounts available.
