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
- Previous cesarean birth
- 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 non-refundable deposit of $500 is due at the first prenatal visit and a Financial Agreement will be signed. Our Accounts Manager, Rebekah Carroll, will send a monthly invoice that you will receive by the 1st of every month. Your monthly payments will be due on the 15th of every month. We do offer a sliding scale fee schedule to those in need, please contact our Accounts Manager, Rebekah Carroll, for an application. Rebekah can be reached at 607-210-6066 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual visits vary in cost depending on the need. Please email us for pricing.
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.
Please contact our Accounts Manager, Rebekah Carroll, with any questions regarding your invoices or payments. Rebekah can be reached at 607-210-6066 or email@example.com.
