For many clients, choosing to birth at home is a testament to their inherent trust in the birthing process. With the utmost of care and watchful eye of our midwife team, we coach, support, soothe and help empower your family in this transformative experience. In ensuring the safety of mom and baby, we bring all of the medical supplies and equipment that are routinely available in a birth center setting. In addition, as water can aid tremendously in relaxation during natural birth, we encourage the use of birth tubs and help to facilitate that process.

Labor and Delivery 

Birth is an opportunity to honor a woman's innate wisdom. Giving birth at home allows you to labor and birth in a familiar surrounding - having total control in temperature, lighting, sound, the ability to eat/drink as desired, and who is present for the birth of your baby.  ​​-Active labor monitoring of vital signs and baby’s heart tones using a hand-held doppler -Use of professional birth pool  -Birth kit given at 37 weeks with essentials for labor and postpartum -A midwife assistant to maintain order and cleanliness of the birth space, assist the midwife at time of delivery, disinfect and deflate the pool, keep the birth team (You too, Dad!) hydrated and nourished, and will even do a load of laundry  -On-site emergency equipment and medications including IV fluids and resuscitation equipment The only thing better than a midwife is a team of midwives. During your time in care, you will rotate prenatal and postpartum care with 2-3 licensed certified professional midwives. Our well-balanced on-call schedule ensures that you receive safe and well-rested care.

--------------------------------------

We accept cash, ACH or credit card/HSA/FSA (3.5% CC fee). 

Insurance: We are considered out-of-network providers with all insurance companies. Most plans have high deductibles making it a small difference to pay out of pocket for your care. We refer to a specialized midwifery biller that will give you the specifics of your plan’s maternity benefits. If your plan has a low deductible and covers home birth then she will assist you in seeking reimbursement by filing a claim on your behalf after your care is complete. This service is not included in our fee. 

Sliding scale discount: At Full Circle Midwifery, we want midwifery care to be accessible to everyone, which is challenging in our patchwork system of health insurance, insufficient coverage for out-of-hospital midwives, and poor insurance reimbursement for care providers. For this reason, we offer sliding scale pricing to families in need. This is determined by our sliding scale guidelines and our availability for that calendar month. 

"Busy Mama" add-on:  All visits, with the exception of blood work and problem visits, can occur in the home for a travel fee.

Hospital Birth: Having a home birth isn’t for everyone and is contraindicated for those with increased chances of complications during childbirth. The Prenatal Care Package provides support through your entire pregnancy, prepares you for a hospital birth and then cares for your postpartum needs, all while encompassing the Midwifery Model of Care.  Please call for current pricing.
