Pregnancy is a process that invites you to surrender to the unseen force behind all life.

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.

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.
