When a woman decides that Willowsong is right for her, she is choosing a model of care that is unique in our community. We feel that the quality of personal attention and care we provide is worth investing in. Birth centers and home birth practices enjoy better health outcomes for mothers and babies than standard hospital care for comparable childbearing populations.
The professional Care of the Mother fee for both home birth and birth center birth is $5400. There are additional fees for newborn care and for birth center facility use; please call our office to inquire about details.
A portion of fees are paid in full by 34 weeks gestation. Please contact our office for additional details.
Our fees are billed to your insurance as out-of-network. We are NOT currently in-network for the birth package. As a courtesy to the client, our fees include billing services to help you receive a refund from your insurance company.
The facility fees for both home birth and birth center birth and the professional fee for the Willowsong Midwifery Service for you and your baby cost substantially less than a normal, vaginal hospital birth. With hospital birth, you are responsible for both the hospital facility fee and the professional fee for your prenatal, labor and birth care and postpartum, as well as baby care. These fees can range anywhere from $10,000-$20,000; higher if you have a cesarean birth or any intervention during the process.
