Birth Services

At Gentle Birth Options, LLC we offer a discounted package price for pregnancy care and delivery. This is offered at a discounted rate. No discount of this fee is ever given for late entry into care or if you are transferring in from another care provider; therefore the fee is the same for all mothers no matter how many weeks pregnant they are at their initial visit. Should you transfer care out of the practice prior to the onset of labor, fees will be itemized and you will be charged only for the care and services you received.
