Certified Nurse Midwife

We are thrilled to offer professional Nurse-Midwifery services using an individualized approach catered to your needs. We understand this is rarely available and want to maintain a sustainable practice in order to continue offering high quality care as a solo provider.

In order to make our services available to as many people as possible, we have become an in-network provider with CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield and Amerigroup.  As we are currently the only in-network homebirth provider and CNM offering hospital births in the Baltimore area, we utilize a Concierge Model of Care. This allows you to use your insurance coverage and allows us to continue offering high-quality care while keeping our patient volume low to enable long visits, 24- hour availability, and more. 

Our Birth Package Includes:

  • All Prenatal Care - usually 8-12 visits, including one home visit at 36 weeks for homebirth clients

  • Prenatal Visits are 30-60 minutes long on average to ensure all your questions are answered. We offer flexible appointment times, including evenings, so they fit into your schedule. When you arrive for your scheduled visit time you rarely have to wait.

  • We draw your blood in our office so you don't need to go to a lab

  • Referrals for ultrasounds and genetic testing as desired

  • Attendance during labor and birth

  • Birth pool if desired

  • Initial Newborn assessment at birth

  • 3-5 postpartum visits, including 2 in your home: at 24-48 hours and 1 week postpartum. An optional 3-4 week visit and a standard 6 week visit are included. Occasionally a family will request an additional visit if they have concerns.

  • Regular availability from 9am-9pm on a non-emergent basis for questions and concerns

  • 24 hour availability for emergent issues and labor

  • Availability by cell phone, text, and email

  • No additional fee for the birth assistant
