At Heritage Births, we understand that life is sometimes stressful, and you have plenty to keep you busy without adding more to your plate. That's why we strive to be a "one-stop shop" for many of the things you need during pregnancy and postpartum. Whether it's billing your insurance, diagnostic/medical testing, breastfeeding support, or one of the many other things we offer, we're here to make it simple and save you time and money.
Insurance and Christian Health Share Billing
While insurance is supposed to be there to help you pay for your medical needs, it can be frustrating to navigate and confusing to know how to get the financial assistance you need. You will not have to go through the hassle of this process on your own; we're here to help! Whether you have traditional insurance (such as Cigna, United Healthcare or Aetna), or are a part of a Christian health share (such as Samaritan, CHM, Liberty, etc), we can work with you and your carrier to help you get as much financial assistance as possible.
Heritage Births utilizes the services of a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer to provide ultrasounds for our clients. Not only will you receive a personalized, high quality service at an affordable and competitive rate, but it will be the most comfortable ultrasound you have ever received! Instead of being put in a tiny room and forced onto an uncomfortable table for 45 minutes, you will be able to recline on one of our birth room beds, and it will only take about 15 minutes of your time. The monitor will be facing you, so that you can see your beautiful baby and understand what the sonographer is looking for and evaluating as she sees it. You can also bring whomever you'd like with you to your appointment (including your other children), and you'll receive some nice keepsake pictures to take home with you. While this is a medical procedure, we want it to feel as minimally invasive as possible, and to be a wonderful event for your family.
Instead of being sent to a separate lab facility and having to wait for testing to be done, we can do it all for you during your regular appointment! Your blood and/or urine specimens will be collected in our office and sent to our contracted laboratory company for processing and results. We will then contact you within 1-3 days of your testing to go over your results and provide you with any necessary recommendations or follow-up testing.
Breastfeeding and Lactation Support
Breastfeeding can be a wonderful experience for a new mom and her baby, but for some moms, it does not come easily and they need additional support. It can be overwhelming and upsetting when this happens since the mom did not anticipate having issues, and is now struggling with her baby's latch or with her supply. We are here to provide support, reassurance, and solutions that will increase satisfaction with the breastfeeding and/or lactation experience.
Childbirth Education Classes
Taking a class before you give birth to your child is an excellent way for you and your partner to prepare for the birth of your child. Since many childbirth classes are geared toward hospital birth, or preparing you for what to expect in a hospital setting, we like for our classes to be specifically for parents who are preparing for a birth center for home birth. This way you will be learning information that is 100% tailored to the experience you will be having so that you are mentally, emotionally and physically ready for your upcoming birth
Every mom wants to have the healthiest pregnancy possible for the sake of her and her baby, but it is difficult and confusing sometimes to figure out the best way to achieve that. That's where we come in! Not only will we be discussing diet and nutrition during your prenatal appointments, but we also carry in our office most of the supplements that we will recommend to pregnant women. This way you're able to get the supplements you need, without having to drive to multiple stores to find the exact item you're looking for, all at a discounted price since we buy them straight from the manufacturer. Who wouldn't want to save time AND money?
There are so many amazing books that you will want to read to prepare yourself for your upcoming birth and having a newborn, but it can get very expensive to purchase each one. Heritage Births invites you to borrow a book at each appointment, that way you'll always have something new to read without the hassle of having purchase them each time. Then when you are done with it, just bring it back and trade it for the next one that catches your eye!
