FEES

The fee for the Birth Package for all clients is a birth retainer fee of $2500. This retainer fee holds your spot  in our schedule as we only take 3-6 clients due each month to ensure we will make it to your birth. This fee does not go toward your deductible.
If you have insurance with CareFirst or Amerigroup, this fee covers services not covered by your insurance, including the birth assistant, travel/gas costs, tub rental, midwife's birth supplies, breastfeeding support, and childbirth education. The full fees for care are still charged to your insurance and you are responsible for any deductibles or co-pays.

If you have a different insurance, our self pay fee is $5000 or $4500 if paid by 30 weeks. This includes the retainer fee. After the birth of your baby, we will bill your insurance company for all care, and whatever they pay out, minus billing fees, will be reimbursed to you.

If finances are an issue, please let us know so we can develop a solution. All fees are payable with a payment plan over the length of your pregnancy. A deposit of $500 is necessary to start care.
