Cost of Care

Our birth center and homebirth clients pay one global fee of $4950 prior to their due date for fully comprehensive prenatal, birth, postpartum & infant care with our excellent midwives. We work hard to keep billing simple & to not have unexpected fees added on for clients. Therefore, everything in the scope of a "normal pregnancy" is included in our fee & is listed below.

While most clients follow the schedule below for payments of our global fee of $4950, we do make other arrangements for some clients.  Call or email for more information. : 

  1. $500 at your first medical appointment,
  2. $1725 by your 18 week of pregnancy and
  3. $2725 by your 36th week of pregnancy

If you are transferring to our care from another provider in the midst of a pregnancy, we will deduct from your Global Fee prior care you have already received and we have verified from your medical records.  If desired, call or email us for an estimate of that deduction.

If you transfer from our care, we will itemize the care you have received from us to deduct from the amount you have paid us and reimburse or bill you accordingly.

We are a birthing center licensed in the state of Utah and we are providers with medically recognized licenses. You can bill your insurance for your care from us as "out of network providers".  After your last appointment with us, we will send you statements with the required coding of each service you and your baby received for you to submit to your insurance company, who will reimburse you directly according to your plan's coverage.

We accept checks, cash, Visa, Mastercard, Am Ex or Discover cards.  We also take health savings accounts and flex spending accounts.

Below is a list of required insurance coding of potential services if you are calling your insurance provider before signing up with us to see what they will cover. 

Not covered by the Global Fee: any care provided by someone other the The Birth Center (like childbirth classes, doula or photographer, placental encapsulation, ambulance or hospital fees), genetic screening, non-routine laboratory tests and STAT processing fees, 2nd professional ultrasound, 2nd Rhogam injection, any products sold in our facility like probiotics, oils, supplements etc.

We are happy to answer your specific financial questions. Please don't hesitate to contact Eva, our office manager at:  801-262-0887 or
