FAQ’s About our Lamaze Childbirth Classes
Insurance & Flexible Spending Accounts
4 Moms 2 Be does NOT bill your insurance company directly. You will receive a paid invoice so you can submit it for reimbursement.  

Some health insurance companies now cover Lamaze childbirth education BUT not all employers will include it in their plan, it depends on your individual policy. You must call your benefits department for more information on what covered in your policy.  

Some Flexible Spend Accounts will cover the cost, again please call you benefits department.

FAQ’s About our Labor Support Doula Service

4 Moms 2 Be is a Doula Matching service. The Labor Support Doulas are not employees of 4 Moms 2 Be, they are independent Doulas. We’ve contracted with local trained Doulas to offer labor support to our patients at a reduced rate.  

4 Moms 2 Be is dedicated to providing qualified and supportive birth professionals to women and their families in hospitals, birth centers and at home. We encourage a trusting relationship between the woman and the midwife or doctor, ensure a non-confrontational, non-judgmental supportive environment.

After completing a “Doula Request” form, 4 Moms 2 Be will contact that Doula to see if she is still available for your due date. If she is still available you will received a confirmation email. At that point you are required pay the $50.00 deposit within 48 hours of the date on the email. Once the deposit is paid you will receive a second confirmation email with the Doula’s contact information. At that time 4 Moms 2 Be match making service is complete and all further arrangements including meetings and paying the balance will be directly with the Doula you selected.
