What does the fee of $3,000 cover?

Posted in Fees

My services include all prenatal visits, routine lab work, a labor pool, labor and birth at your home, all postpartum visits, including a pap, and all newborn exams.
My fee does NOT include non-diagnostic diagnostic ultrasounds, childbirth education classes (which I recommend), doctor visits (if they become necessary, which is rare), a hospital birth (if a transport becomes necessary), Rhogam (for Rh negative women), extra lab work (which is rare), and the newborn screen at 10 days postpartum.
