Multiple Homebirth Fee

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am wondering how you charge for twin/triplet prenatal, births, and postpartum care at home. Do you charge double for twins and triple for triplets? What does this fee pay for that would be different from a singleton birth?

Thanks.

Ladies (Gentlemen), I know that you've got to know how much you charge. Even if you don't catch babies for the money, but because it is your passion, I realize that a mutual transfer of energy is important. Your replies will be SO appreciated. Thank you.

I've never attended multiples, so I'm not sure what the standard is. What I think I'd do is charge my regular rate, plus whatever the additional cost is for me to bring in extra midwives for the birth (since you need more help at a twin birth then you do at a singleton). Hope you get some more replies!

I think in many locations the price is higher for multiples, but not double for twins/triple for triplets. The price would be higher because of needing to pay for additional attendants at the birth..... exactly how much higher would depend on the midwife and the cost of paying additional midwives to help (and that can vary HUGELY based on region of the country).
