INFORMATION & FAQ's
How much does a home birth cost?
Home birth midwifery care for pregnancy, labor, birth, newborn, and postpartum care are offered as a package under a single global fee of approximately $4,000 in the Colorado Springs area.
I operate under a cash pay fee model, rather than accepting insurance. This allows me to offer a sliding scale arrangement, and give reasonable cash pay discounts as reflected in the table below.
It also allows me greater freedom to practice in a way that aligns with my philosophy and is safe for all concerned -- clients, babies, and myself. It's also a way to keep costs down and eliminate a lot of unnecessary paperwork.
I am happy to provide a coded receipt for any and all payments received at the end of your care so that if you desire, you can submit a claim to your insurance for potential reimbursement.

Payment Structure & Discounts:
Payments can be made as a lump sum, or on a monthly basis from the beginning of care until the balance paid in full at the 36 week home visit. I accept cash, check, HSA/FSA accounts, and major credit cards.
Routine labs, drawn at 12 weeks and 28 weeks, cost approximately $250 if they are not covered by insurance. This amount can be paid at the time of service, or added to your total and broken up into your monthly payment.
A $300 discount is available for:
- Active duty military and first responders
- Repeat clients
- Paying in full at the initial appointment
Note: Only ONE discount may be applied, due to the sliding scale model. They do not stack.
Additional details are available in my Financial Agreement. Be sure to request a consultation, and I will be happy to provide the information to you.
