Re: What does your midwife charge?

$3,600 for mine, plus $20 each time she comes out (except for the birth). Insurance covered most of it

$3,000 for everything if you go to their office except your 36 week home check and the birth
$3,300 for a mix of office and home visits
$3,600 for them to come to your home for every prenatal


There is a super famous midwife in my area and her charge is $5,000

I am in MA

Wow - I'm surprised at some of these rates. My first HB cost me $2,700 - that includes prenatals and testing 12 weeks and on, the birth (and the tub), and 6 weeks postpartum. I live in MT. It's all OOP, but we have the highest rate of home birth in the states, so maybe that's a factor. My second home birth was $1,400 but I didn't switch until 36 weeks.

$2000 for l&d pp care $50/prenatal visit. So roughly $2500 total. Much cheaper than hossy birth.

Do they cover homebirth? My hospital-based midwifery care was covered in Australia, but homebirths are not. Most of the rates that being quote here are for private midwife-attended homebirths.

Her global maternity fee for cash pay clients is discounted to $4000 and she does not charge them a facility fee for use of the birth center. Does not include labs, ultrasounds, Vitamin K, etc. Our insurance will cover her out of network, so they will be billed her full GMF and facility fee and we are responsible for our OON deductible ($600). Our OON coverage is 80/20, but if they cover at least $4000, she's writing off our percentage.

$3500. That is delivery and pp visits. She doesn't charge for prenatals. That also doesn't include any lab work or birth kit.
