Ryann Morales, CPM, offers expert prenatal care (including labs and ultrasounds if you choose), home birth, and postpartum care. The midwifery model of care is based on client choice and autonomy, shared decision making, and relies on current evidence. Children and partners are welcome to be as involved as you prefer in all aspects of your care. Midwifery care is paid out of pocket, and Ryann will help you seek a reimbursement from your insurance after your care is complete. Cost: $4500, divided into monthly payments.
