Cost of your care

 Understanding and navigating maternity care costs is difficult because each insurance policy has different coverage.  We want you to make an informed decision regarding your care and the finances are part of that decision-making process. Currently, we are in-network with New Mexico Medicaid and out-of-network with private insurance. The amount that is paid by insurance generally does not cover the costs associated with providing you excellent midwifery care in a birth center setting.


We require a Non-Refundable registration fee of $600 due at the time of registration or at your first midwife appointment. The registration fee is not covered by insurance. 


There is no registration fee for non-pregnancy services such as annual exams. Please note that visits outside the scope of well-pregnancy and well-baby care may be subject to different insurance coverage and may generate additional out-of-pocket costs for you.

As a 501(c)3, it is our hope to serve every low-risk birthing person who desires a birth center birth.  To that end, we have established the Happy Baby Fund, which we can access to help out families for whom the cost of maternity care presents a hurdle to them being able to have the care they want.

If you choose the Santa Fe Birth Center as your care provider, you are responsible for paying your portion by week 36 of your pregnancy.  You can make payments or pay it all at once.  We are flexible in our payment plans.
