The Birth Center does not accept insurance for our services. All our services can be purchased using HSA/FSA funds. If you have a high-deductible plan, the cost is comparable to what you'd pay out-of-pocket for a hospital birth. If you don't have insurance, our birth center is much more affordable than the hospital.
We also offer home birth. All the above is included. Your prenatal care will be at The Birth Center. But your birth will take place in your home. You will need to supply a tub, if you would like one. And we have a home birth kit for purchase. But we bring other necessary medical equipment.
A deposit is due to secure your due date. This deposit is non-refundable and goes toward your total fee. A second payment is due at 28 weeks and the remaining is due at 34 weeks. This last payment is refundable should you risk out of care before being admitted to The Birth Center for labor. Please contact us for current pricing and fee schedules.
