Effective June 30, 2019, Greenville Midwifery Care has transitioned all midwifery births to Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital as we are no longer able to support births at the birth center due to payer reimbursement limitations.
We remain deeply committed to supporting every woman through her pregnancy and delivery, and know that midwifery services are an important part of that mission. Our midwives will still serve as primary caregivers during pregnancy and birth. Like at the birth center, midwifery patients will still be able to choose the type of low-intervention birth that is right for them, including VBAC, water birth and unmedicated birth.
We understand that this is a change for patients who were planning on a birth center delivery. A patient’s comfort and trust in her birth plan is our top priority for all of our prenatal patients, and we are working to ensure that each patient’s individual birth plan remains consistent through this transition.
We’re proud to have offered this type of birth at our birth center for four years. We have advocated diligently during this time for payment reform to allow us to continue to offer this important service. Unfortunately, current reimbursement models are such that we can no longer offer this option.
