Setting your midwifery fees is all about finding that sweet spot - not too high, not too low. But what defines that, and what information do you need to determine the appropriate fees for your area?

This mini-course outlines multiply pathways to those answers, and then holds your hand through the process, with downloadable worksheets, walkthrough videos, and examples.

If you've been overwhelmed by this process in the past, this course is for you!

Bonus: All course participants are invited to attend an optional drop-in Zoom session on Thursday, February 17, 2022, for live Q&A and personalized support in this process. If you learn best from live, personalized instruction, be sure to enroll and complete the on-demand course by February 16th, 2022.

Upon completion of the on-demand portion of this course, a HiveCE Certificate will be issued for 2 hours of CE, which will count as Category 2 CE for your CPM renewal.

“This was such a helpful course! I just signed up with a billing service and needed to set my fees but had no real idea how and now I not only have a list of fees but a solid understanding of how each one came about. Thank you for including the additional resources and making this so easy to understand! This was the first billing course I've ever attended that was easy to follow.”
