- For consults with midwives who are not yet Medicare eligible, you will be charged the Out of Pocket (OOP) amount only.
- The Midwifery Care Plan is a legal requirement for the midwives to conduct with each client once during pregnancy. It’s often a longer session and costs more upfront, but attracts a larger Medicare Rebate.
- The Booking Fee is an administration fee required of all MAMA clients. This fee is due at 20 weeks (or upon booking if coming to us later in pregnancy) and is non-refundable. It includes complimentary visits with our Lactation Consultant and our Women’s Health Physiotherapist, as well as 5% off of all MAMA retail sales.
- The On-Call Fee is payable in full before 36 weeks pregnancy for all clients having birth support. The MAMA midwifery team will be available for you 24/7 from the time of your booking until 6 weeks postnatal.
- The Birth Fee is payable in full before 36 weeks pregnancy. The fee is regardless of the time spent with you (in case of very slow or quick births, no addition costs or discount).
- In the event of a change in birthing location or support after 36 weeks, you will receive a maximum refund of 80% of your Birth Fee only.
- The Birth Fee includes medical equipment. A pool and TENS machine are not included.
- Travel costs are included for 5 home visits if <20km from our clinics. Beyond that distance and/or number of home visits, the charge is $0,80 a kilometer.
- Consultation and birth fee prices are inclusive of GST.
