Midwifery is full of a lot of amazing moments, but in between the life-changing deliveries, we have to deal with some pretty mundane tasks. While billing and coding might not be the most exciting aspect of your practice, it is one of the most important. By understanding the technical side of midwifery, we’re able to let our practices empower more families to take control of their deliveries.
We developed the course, Comprehensive Billing and Coding for Birth Centers and Midwives, to help you understand the crucial elements that enable your practice. The course is taught by Leslie Cornwell, a certified nurse midwife with nearly two decades working in the healthcare field. Throughout her time, she’s gained crucial information on the administrative workings of clinics and is excited to pass her knowledge on to you. Our mission is to break down the more complicated aspects of running a practice so you can keep doing what you love!
Throughout this class, you’ll learn the importance of billing and coding. We’ll explain things like ICD 10 codes, CPT codes, modifier codes, and superbills. You’ll learn about costs, fees, and verification of benefits. We’ll discuss insurance, billable codes for things such as telemedicine, and newborn billing and coding. We’ll end by reviewing the changes that have taken place the past several years within this field. We are confident that by the end of this course, you’ll feel prepared to keep this side of your practice running smoothly!

Becoming a midwife has been a lifelong dream. I didn't realize that this wonderful profession would lead me down the path of business. I have found over the years that midwives need to understand business, accounting, financing, marketing, negotiating, and so much more to be successful in today's health care system. I love supporting women. By being able to participate in leadership roles and create amazing private practices, I can support midwives just as much as the pregnant women they care for! I am passionate about women's empowerment and women business ownership. We can serve families best with independent successful midwifery practices.
I have had over 16 years’ experience in health care. I have worked in hospitals, birth centers, and home settings. I have worked for large non-profit hospitals, small community hospitals, privately run birth centers, hospital owned birth centers, own home birth / birth center practice, and locum assignments. Being able to understand the business and financial side of midwifery has really shown me how much easier a midwife practice can be profitable and successful in today's health care ever changing climate.
Let me help you start your own practice or improve the current midwifery business you are struggling with. I have years of billing, accounting, contracting, business plan writing, and midwifery clinical expertise to make your midwifery practice thrive no matter what stage it is in! Whether you want a small home birth practice, large birth center practice, or booming hospital midwifery practice, I can provide guidance, support, and resources to make your midwifery practice dreams a reality!
