New Client Paperwork

Please click HERE to download a copy of our packet for new prenatal clients. We ask that you complete this paperwork prior to your first visit in order to maximize your time with the midwife.

Please click HERE to download a copy of our Verification of Benefits form. Because insurance coverage for birthing center care is often complex, we require that new prenatal clients obtain a Verification of Benefits Report though Digital Billing (please review the Insurance page on our website for more information).

Educational Materials

We have developed several resources for clients, family members, and labor support team members. We encourage clients to share these resources with their partners and anyone else who is involved in their prenatal care and birthing plan.
