After our free in person interview, my service fee is broken down into payments that work for the family. Generally half is given upon signing the contract ( after your decision is made), and then the other half is due by baby's birthday (at a pre natal visit or through Paypal). The gift to support the birth is priceless and further helps support my goals of working around birth as a midwife. I feel honored to help support you during this exciting time and look forward is discovering how i can best assist you and your team. I am happy to work out other payment plans to meet the family where you are most comfortable. Blessings!
