FAQs

Your questions, answered!

I’ve compiled some answers to your most common questions. Hopefully I’ve got everything covered. Feel free to contact me if you still have questions…

Yes. I have had training in vaginal breech deliveries, and I’m prepared to attend your birth if you desire a breech birth at home. For more info on breech birth at home, check out Breech Without Borders.

Yes, of course! I have a birth pool for rent, if you don’t have a suitable tub at home.

I fully support you in a TOLAC (trial of labor after cesarean) or VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) at home as long as your previous medical history allows for it. Feel free to call me to discuss your specific circumstances.

Midwives carry all the same equipment and medication you would find at a birth center — oxygen, neonatal resuscitation equipment, anti-hemorrhagic medications, suturing materials, and IV fluids. We are trained in NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program) and CPR and are required by law to keep certifications current.

Unfortunately, most major insurance providers do not cover midwifery, doula, or home birth care. There are health cooperatives like Christian Medi-Share, Samaritan Ministries, and Knew Health that do cover home birth, and I’m happy to provide a global fee invoice for you to submit. I also accept FSA payments.

As long as I have room in my calendar, I am happy to provide prenatal care and birth support to you, even if you come late in care. If you have been in the care of another practitioner, I will obtain records from them so you can transition seamlessly into my care. The cost of midwifery care will be the same as someone who started earlier in care, since there is a lot of “catch-up” work to be done, and relationship building to be done in a shorter period of time.
