Generally, there is a global fee for obstetric care that includes office visits, labor and delivery, and your postpartum checkup. Not included in this global fee are labs, sonograms, fetal non-stress tests, and Rhogam injections. Your insurance will be billed for these fees. However, you may be responsible for a portion of them. Your balance will be due at the time of service. To determine the extent of your maternity coverage, you are encouraged to contact your insurance carrier directly.
Any changes to your insurance coverage, address, or contact information should be immediately reported to our office. Failure to provide insurance information may make you financially responsible for your medical care.
Maternity and paternity leave may be available through your respective employers. Paperwork should be submitted well in advance of your due date in order to avoid any delays. Completion of forms may take 7 to 10 days, so please allow plenty of time.
Mood changes are common during the first two weeks after delivery. To help you cope with this major life change, get plenty of rest, avoid stress as much as possible, and eat well. If you are not enjoying and bonding with your baby, are having trouble taking care of yourself and your newborn, or if you are feeling extremely sad, anxious, or depressed, you may require professional treatment for a short time. If your symptoms persist for more than two weeks, we encourage you to reach out to us. Our staff is known for compassionate care and outstanding resources for postpartum depression.
