Follow the below link for “What is a Birth Center?”
A freestanding birth center specializes in caring for healthy individuals. Unfortunately, there are health conditions that would be better served in a higher acuity facility such as a hospital. Below is a list of conditions that would not be safe for a birth at Indian Creek.
- Bleeding Disorder and/or hemolytic disease
- Current drug or alcohol addiction
- Heart Disease
- Renal Disease
- Sickle Cell Anemia
- Smoking past 12 weeks of pregnancy
*Please note that this list is not inclusive of all risk factors. A review of heath records will be needed for all prospective clients.
The total fee for maternity services is $6,700 and must be paid in full by 36 weeks, unless other arrangements have been made. A Financial Agreement will be reviewed and signed at the first visit. Your monthly payments will be due on the end of every month. We do offer a sliding scale fee schedule to those in need. Please email us for an application at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual visits vary in cost depending on the need. Please email us for pricing at email@example.com.
We can begin your care as early as you would like. If all is normal and well, 10-12 wks is a good timeframe to initiate your prenatal care. If you are transferring care from another provider, we accept transfers up until 34wks of pregnancy or later in extenuating circumstances.
Once you have initiated care with our practice, a dating ultrasound will be offered at your first visit. You will also be offered an anatomy ultrasound at about 20 weeks gestation. Further ultrasounds will be offered if and when indicated.
We can fax an ultrasound order to the facility of your choice. Ultrasounds are not currently performed at the birth center.
All of the standard pregnancy lab work will be offered and completed at the birth center. If you prefer to have the lab work completed at a different facility, we can fax a lab order to the location of your choice.
