Deb Phillips, Midwife         

Rates and Services

I offer free initial consultation for those who are exploring their birth options. Remember this is "Your Birth - YOUR WAY" for homebirth, waterbirth, father assisted or using alternative pain management to make this and your future ones a special birth.

I offer personalized care that cannot be found through any other maternity practitioner. Midwives guard the natural process and use common obstetrical intervention only as a last resort. Thus, they have little need for episiotomy and have fewer cases of fetal distress. Their continuity of care reduces the need for cesarean sections, inductions, and even increases the mother's pain tolerance.

Services provided may include:
--Prenatal care
--Phone counselling and referrals
--Nutritional counselling
--24 hour availability
--Labor and birth assistance
--Breastfeeding assistance
--Newborn and postpartum care
--Support in parenting
--Well woman care
--Herbal and homeopathic solutions
--Doula services

Are midwifery services affordable? Midwifery charges are usually around one-eighth the cost of hospital delivery. Most insurance companies cover licensed midwife charges. If paying cash, installments are made to cover the balance by the ninth month.
