Does Blessed Event Birth Services Inc take insurance?
No. If you are curious, you can read my reasons here.
What services does Blessed Event Birth Services Inc offer?
You can find details about my midwifery services here.
Are there procedures and tests you require?
I do require an OB panel, this is a lab that checks hemoblogin, and blood type among other things. It also checks for sexually trasmitted infections. This lab helps me know what to expect as far as how low hemoglobin may go during pregnancy, and if we need to discuss blood type issues that may affect baby. All the other lab tests and procedures such as ultrasound are optional, unlesss I see something that indicates we need more information.
Are you part of a group practice?
No, I have an independent practice.
What areas do you serve?
I serve up to a 75 mile radius from my home. This includes the communities of Manhattan, Junction City, Fort Riley, Chapman, Milford, Clay Center, Riley, Randolph, Council Grove, St Marys, Rossvile, Wamego, Belvue, and many other communities in Kansas.
How many clients do you take a month?
I take up to 3 clients in a month. I limit the number of clients I serve to ensure I can provide the best individualized care I am capable of. I also limit the number to hopefully head off having 2 clients in labor at the same time, and to keep midiwfery sustainable for me. I hope to be catching babys for many years to come so I want to avoid exhaustion and burnout.
Do you serve VBAC clients?
Yes I do. I have served clients who had successful home births after multiple cesearean sections.
Will you attend a planned breech birth?
Yes, I will attend a planned breech birth. Part of what makes breech birth safer is having an experienced provider as the attendant. I have attended 3 breech births, as well as various breech birth trainings, however I do not feel experienced enough to be the sole attendant at a breech birth yet. I would ask another more experienced provider to attend the birth with me and there would be additional expenses beyond my standard midwifery fee.
