Our medically-recognized Level 2 imaging is performed in the Sego Lily Midwifery office or a partner location by experienced techs and radiologists. Your midwife will provide you with our complete Financial Agreement ahead of your initial prenatal visit. Utah requires a Newborn Metabolic screen (you may decline under religious exemption), hearing screen and CCHD (heart) screen, which we will perform.
We offer comprehensive maternity and pregnancy care for low risk women. Routine pregnancy lab work is included. Non-routine labs will be direct billed to you/your insurance separately by the lab. Home births are attended by midwives and skilled attendants. Complete prenatal care includes: monthly pregnancy visits weeks 8-28, bi-monthly pregnancy visits weeks 28-36 and weekly pregnancy visits weeks 36-birth. We are on call 24/7 for you starting week 37 until you give birth or transfer to another provider. We provide medically recognized ultrasound imaging by skilled technicians and radiologists. Typically, the 20 week anatomy scan is the primary imaging performed / recommended.
Routine postpartum care includes a visit to your home at 24-48 hours postpartum to perform state mandated newborn screens and look in on the mother, a second home visit including the second metabolic newborn screen and well-baby and mother check-up at 7-14 days post birth, and a final office visit 6-8 weeks post birth. We offer and perform standard diagnostic screening / testing to newborns including CCHD (heart screen), hearing screen, metabolic screen, weight checks & birth certificate filing. If bedside bilirubin checks for jaundice are indicated, these will be billed separately. If you opt to employ pediatrician care during this time to perform testing and newborn checks, this visit schedule may be reduced or modified but will not be prorated from the global fee.
Payment Schedule: $900 non-refundable deposit to reserve your due date, accomplish labs, ultrasound and care to 28 weeks, with another $1100 payment made on or before your 28 week visit with the balance to be paid in full by 36 weeks when we bring the pool and supplies to your home at your home prenatal visit, offer/perform another routine diagnostic, and go on 24/7 call for your birth for several weeks.

Most midwives including Sego Lily Midwifery do not direct bill insurance carriers. Some clients have had success receiving reimbursement from their carriers and we can provide you with an itemized / global bill upon request. We can provide you with necessary global service codes. You are responsible for submitting itemized claim to your insurance. We do not employ a billing service that itemizes care.
For those without healthcare insurance: Consider Community Health Share Organizations such as: Christian Healthcare Ministries, Solidarity*, Liberty Health Share and Samaritan Ministries have been consistent payers. *Solidarity recently provided clients with full reimbursement in December 2021 and we are in their system.
Midwife Heather Whitley is listed as in-network Blue Shield California & out-of-network provider for BCBS Regence, UHC and Cigna with clients historically receiving reimbursements. *Call your insurance early to verify benefits and provider coverage and contact Heather for her NPI number. We support your effort to the best of our ability as a courtesy, but it will be your responsibility to interface with your insurance.
