Maternity Care Package
Our maternity care package price includes unlimited prenatal visits and limitless access to the three Mt Eaton Midwifery certified nurse-midwives. Also included is routine pregnancy bloodwork,
i.e., a prenatal panel, a one-hour glucose tolerance test and a complete blood count around 26-28 weeks. At 36-38 weeks, a group B streptococcus culture is obtained (GBS).
Some tests are not covered such as ultrasounds, 3-hour glucose
tolerance tests, urine cultures and non-stress tests. Injections are not included such as Rh immunoglobulin if your blood type is negative. Should a transfer to the hospital be required, this package does not include those fees.
The package price is $1700; however, if you pay by your 36th week (one month before your due date) you will receive a $100 discount. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card and at anytime during your pregnancy. Most families make periodic payments while some pay in one lump sum. Other families use the Church Fund.
Of course, you will receive care from the midwife during your labor and birth, a home visit to check you and your new baby about 4-10 days after birthing, and a 6-week checkup for you after the baby arrives. If there are any concerns about your newborn, the midwife will contact your baby doctor.
We want to work around your busy schedules. We are happy to see you as often as you like. But we have discovered many of the women would not rather be seen too often. We midwives think it’s better to be seen more often at the end of pregnancy rather than at the beginning, but scheduling your very first appointment before 20 weeks is wise.
This is the name of standard pregnancy bloodwork which includes blood type and Rh factor, an antibody screen, a complete blood count, hepatitis B, VDRL, and a check for immunity to German measles. This is routine blood work. We just want to be sure you are healthy
throughout your pregnancy.
At around 24 to 28 weeks, it is recommended most women be checked for diabetes during pregnancy. It involves drinking a premeasured amount of liquid sugar and then having your blood drawn one hour later. The results are usually returned to us the next day. We try to call you with the results or mail a letter.
A simple test to check for iron deficiency anemia. A severe deficiency may cause premature delivery and low birth weight babies.
GBS is a bacteria that can cause your newborn to be very ill at birth. It’s fairly rare, but it can be difficult to treat after the baby has become ill; therefore, the germ is treated while you are in labor with an intravenous antibiotic.
While at the Care Center, you will be attended by your midwife, a Registered Nurse and either a Licensed Practical Nurse or another Registered Nurse. We will encourage you to do whatever you need to do to get this baby born. You may eat and drink whatever suits you during the birthing process and give birth in any position that works!
One of the midwives will come out to your home to check on you and the baby, usually 3-10 days after the birth. If needed, the baby’s doctor will be contacted with any problems.
The Mt Eaton Care Center charges a separate fee to use the facility for childbirth or any other special admissions. They want to be paid before you go home.
