Mountain Midwives’ fees
Our base fee is $4,000 which pays for all the services listed below. We offer a $175 discount to clients who pay by check or cash, rather than by credit card.
Your fee then would be $3,825.
However, we will accept credit card payments as well.
This “global” fee pays entirely for:
-Prenatal care throughout your pregnancy
-Labor, delivery, immediate postpartum and newborn care in your home
-Postpartum follow-up care on days 1, 3, 7, and again at 6 weeks
-A comprehensive weekend seminar on homebirth, at a lovely mountain resort. Lodging and three meals are provided.
This fee does not include the cost of ultrasounds, labwork, physician care, or doula service. Birth supplies will cost about $90. Travel is figured at $0.50 per mile, outside of Yellowstone County, Montana.
Many insurance companies will cover the cost of a home birth attended by a licensed midwife. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to inquire. Medicaid of Montana and Wyoming do not (yet!) pay for home births. Please be aware that we do not file claims with insurance companies. However, we can provide you with receipts for payments, which you can then submit for reimbursement.
Clients will receive a Payment Form at their first prenatal appointment, on which they will create their own payment schedule and method of payment. Full payment is expected by 36 weeks of pregnancy. Please discuss the details of your arrangements with the midwives.
