We become excited each and every time a prospective client inquires about care, as we just love learning about people!

We offer free consultations for prospective clients where we answer any questions you may have regarding our midwives, what we do as licensed midwives, how our model of care differs from mainstream OB care, about homebirth and who's a good candidate to birth out of a hospital, and for us to get to know a little about you!

We are sure to touch upon fees for service, billing arrangements, insurance questions, as well as the important topic of how we keep folks safe during homebirth. Beginning to get a sense of what a prospective new client is looking for in midwives helps us provide the customized care you deserve during this most transformative time of your life.

Nest Midwifery offers comprehensive, individualized care for the entire childbearing year.
Prenatal Care 
Prenatal care typically involves up to hour-long visits that include assessment of client’s overall health and vital signs, any necessary lab work and screenings, fetal assessment, as well as preparation for your upcoming birth. Around 36 weeks Nest Midwives do an in-home prenatal visit to discuss your hopes and plans for your birth, backup plans in case of a transport to the hospital, and to familiarize themselves with your home.  
Labor and Birth Care 
Nest Midwives provide attentive and knowledgeable care throughout labor, birth and the postpartum period. We assess the wellbeing of birthing person and baby throughout the labor and birth process, provide labor support and options for comfort, as well as information and recommendations when complications occur. Nest Midwives are trained and equipped to suture perineal tears, and administer intravenous fluids, oxygen, some pharmaceuticals. Our midwives are also certified in both Adult CPR and Neonatal Resuscitation.
After the birth, Nest Midwives will assess the wellbeing of mother and baby, assist with breastfeeding as needed, examine the newborn, and ensure overall family comfort and safety prior to leaving the home. In the event of a medical transport to a hospital, Nest Midwives will accompany the client and assume the role of doula and advocate for the client’s wishes.  
Postpartum Care 
Nest Midwives offer several postpartum visits, including 2-3 home visits in the first week after birth, and then office visits at 2 and 6 weeks after birth. Each postpartum visit will include assessment of mom and baby’s vital signs, newborn development and behavior patterns, physical and emotional recovery from the birthing process, and assistance with breastfeeding.

Fees For Service
We charge $6000 for the entire course of care with Nest Midwifery. This includes extensive prenatal care and your midwives being available 24-hours/day if needs arise and being on call for you from 36-weeks through your early days with your newborn. Labor and birth care, 6 weeks of postpartum care for mom and well-baby care until your little one graduates to pediatric care, referral as necessary for future providers and a smooth transfer of records when it's time, are all included in our fee. We ask all clients to pay upfront prior to birth and offer reasonable payment plans to folks whose insurance doesn't provide coverage. 

We are happy to help verify your insurance benefits prior to or at the beginning of care, and are happy to submit a claim to your company after the birth of your baby. This is called global billing and is standard in the OB billing structure. We will always be considered out-of-network providers, yet many insurance plans offer some portion of cost for prenatal care and out-of-hospital birth service with licensed midwives. There is a small additional fee for our contracted billing service.
