About Direct Maternity Care

Direct Maternity Care is a personalized and comprehensive approach to prenatal, birth support, and postpartum care that involves a close partnership between the client and the provider.


This model of care provides extended appointment times and direct access to a single provider throughout the pregnancy and postpartum period, with a focus on individualized care and informed decision-making.

Direct Maternity Care practices typically have a different payment structure than traditional healthcare practices. Rather than billing through insurance or government programs, our direct maternity care practice charges a set fee for our services, which covers all aspects of prenatal, birth support, and postpartum care.


This fee may be paid upfront, in installments throughout the pregnancy, or after the birth of the baby. Our practice offers sliding-scale fees and payment plans to make care more affordable for clients. While direct maternity care may not be covered by insurance, some clients are able to receive reimbursement from their insurance for a portion of the cost.


Telehealth services are available throughout the state of DE.

In-person house calls are available for families located in Dover, Middletown, Odessa,

Townsend, Newark, and Bear, DE
