A Note from Paige:
I never want issues regarding money and payment to interfere with our care-giving relationship. My work as a midwife is much more than a job, and the reality is that my fees allow me to be available and accessible to you throughout your entire pregnancy. I realize meeting the expenses will take planning for most families, and I am committed to working together to develop a clear and suitable payment plan at the beginning of your time in my care. Discounts are often available for families that are eligible for Medicaid, and bartering is encouraged.
