Births by MOM: Homebirths
The fee* for a vaginal homebirth delivery is $2,600 for first time mothers. However, if you had a successful vaginal delivery or have already received prenatal care elsewhere, a price reduction can be negotiated. All visits, except for the immediate postpartum, take place at our office. In-home visits can be arranged for an additional charge.
- Payment in full by the 34th week of pregnancy automatically reduces the fee to $2,200
- If you are currently on medicaid, the fee is $1,800
- Bartering is welcomed
*My fees include all prenatal, birth, and postpartum care except for lab work and ultrasounds.
Compare my fees with those of at a local hospital where a vaginal delivery ranges from $7,000 to $15,000 and cesarean sections range from $11,000 to $28,000. The OB fee is in addition to these prices, as are the Anesthesiologist and Neonatologist fees.
- Stages of Labor
- Pain Coping Mechanisms
- New Baby Care
As part of my training, I was required to set up and teach childbirth classes at the Miami Maternity Center.
Classes were always FREE of charge and I am looking forward to continuing to provide this service to current and future clients FREE of charge. The classes are 2 day sessions held the 3rd and 4th Saturday of every month from 1pm to 6pm.

Breastfeeding consultations are available for mothers suffering from breastfeeding difficulties.
I am not a lactation consultant however, I have had special training regarding all aspects of breastfeeding and have helped many mothers successfully nurse their babies. In addition, I have breastfed one biological and two adoptive children of my own successfully.
