Do you accept Insurance?
no, not at this time.
What do I owe?
You will owe me the base fee/cash discount fee. We will discuss this at your first appointment.
Will I owe more?
Depends on your location. IF you live outside of the hour radius I normally serve, there may be a travel fee.
Do you accept payments?
Yes, but the full amount (cash discount) needs to be paid by 35 weeks.
What if my insurance pays? Do I still owe the cash discounted price?
Yes, you will still need to pay this amount. Depending on what your insurance might pay you, you may still owe me and remember-but you are not allowed to make money off from your insurance company.
What does your fee include?
An assistant at the birth (not a doula-I do have several who I work with, but they have a seperate fee)
