Our goal at Birth Bungalow is to provide a wide range of expert services to support the diverse needs of every mother and mother-to-be. With our professional staff of lactation consultants, doulas, childbirth educators, and other seasoned perinatal professionals, we are here to help ensure your pregnancy, labor and postpartum are as smooth as possible. Please reach out to us with any questions and we can work together to figure out what services are best for you!
Mommy and Me and Women’s Circle are women-only gatherings. All other events welcome men to participate and are open to partners or a support person. We are here to advocate for you and your needs, so we will involve your partner or support person in classes and services, as you desire, to give you both the best possible experience. When working with a birth doula especially, we take extra care to see how your partner envisions participating and we work to make that happen. We take on very different responsibilities than your partner during birth, so there is room for everyone to be involved in supporting you.
We have a strong interest in making our services available to as many women as possible. Upon your agreement, our billing service will submit bills to your insurance company to try to get the costs of our services covered so that there are minimal out of pocket costs to you.
The cost of some of our classes, lactation consultations, doula services and some products are often 100% covered by your health insurance. The following plans typically provide this coverage:
If you are curious about your plan’s coverage, it is best that we consult together to understand your coverage. Often, calling your insurance company directly will not give you accurate benefits information for our types of services.
For doula clients, the sooner in your pregnancy that you book our services, the greater chance that you will have minimal out of pocket costs. Services are billed to your insurance company on a per visit claim (not as a total doula package). Usually, the more visits, the more reimbursed, so the sooner you contract with us, the more financially advantageous. To ensure that you have coverage, we recommend that your first claim is submitted prior to 30 weeks. Please do not wait until the last minute to book us for doula services. Early birds wind up with the most savings!
