The global fee for homebirth is $5000, which is due by 36 weeks of gestation. Payment plans can be made throughout the pregnancy to help relieve the financial burden.
This is a small practice and we only take a very limited amount of clients per month to ensure that we can attend your birth. All clients are required to make a $500 retainer at their first prenatal appointment (not the free consultation visit). Unless other arrangements are made and agreed to, all fees must be made in full before we can go on call after your 36 week appointment.
What services are covered by $5000 global fee?
Prenatal check ups in office 805 Century Dr. Suite 5 Dubuque, Iowa
Home visit at 36 weeks
On call for your birth 37-42 weeks
Your birth attended by a CNM and 1-2 birth assistants
Postpartum checks at 24 hours, 72 hours, 2 weeks at home

Expenses not covered by this fee include: lab work, ultrasounds, birth tub rental ($100), and your birth kit (which I can provide for an extra fee).
Cash or Check accepted, a 3% fee is added if you are using a credit card.
Do you accept insurance?
I don't bill my services to insurance, but I do provide you with a Superbill, which is an itemized bill with diagnosis codes and CPT codes that can be sent in to your insurance company for partial or total reimbursement.
Are there any discounts for late transfer of care?
Yes, if you transfer 32 weeks or later and provide all of your prenatal care records, you will receive $250 off your total global fee of $5000.
Is the fee refundable?
No. In the event of a transfer of care, I will accompany you to the hospital (policy willing).
Prenatal Care Only:
If you wish to receive prenatal only care, or pregnancy co-care but plan on giving birth in the hospital, each of those visits cost $150. This is also applicable to postpartum visits. If you are receiving prenatal visits and plan on birthing in the hospital, please understand this is adjunctive to the regular prenatal care you are receiving in the hospital and it does not replace those visits.
