Doulas and midwives are not covered by my insurance plan. Is that usually the case? Can anyone share how much on average they spent on doula and/or midwife care?

A doula isn’t a medical professional so they are typically not covered. I’m surprised that midwives aren’t, my OB practice is half OBs and half CNMs and everything is billed through insurance the same. The doula for my first was $1200 in an average COL area and $1800 for my second in a high COL area.

I think doulas are rarely covered and nurse midwives are usually covered in a hospital setting. Home births are usually not covered.

I think I spent like something around 1500 for my doula who also provided birth photography (highly recommend!)

You can get dependent care FSA and at least save 30-40% tax on money you set aside for childcare per year

I’m sorry, is that related to doulas or midwives? Confused.

In a low cost of living area, where homebirth was not uncommon choice, midwives charged about 2500.

In Denver, I’m seeing 6k… your choice to deliver with the midwives (CNMs+DE, all practicing together in a group) at either their beautiful decorated birth center, or at hm.
Insurance will pay for half this fee, billed “globally”, as an out of network provider

Anyone else got price points to share?

Would you continue into the nursing leadership ladder or go into health informatics (which also has leadership!)?
