Hello! My name is Meghan Nowland. I am the founder of the Cincinnati Birth Center (CBC) serving the Cincinnati area, licensed in Ohio, and, as of 2020, the first licensed Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) in the state of Kentucky. I am a highly experienced midwife, doula, and lactation consultant. I and the entire CBC team have a goal to serve all members of the community equally no matter who they are or where they come from. I have a bachelor’s degree in midwifery from the Midwives College of Utah and founded the Ohio chapter of the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM). I volunteer to teach childbirth education classes for the community and Kentucky Home Birth Coalition. In 2017 I became certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Most of all, I care deeply about my clients and bring a calming and uplifting energy to my practice.

Midwife, doula, monitrice, lactation consultant, preconception support, and other services are offered. ****** INSURANCE COVERAGE: We work with a professional insurance billing company to ensure your out-of-pocket costs are as low as possible. Though insurance coverage is definitely not the only method to receive our services, in order to receive any kind of insurance coverage your provider/plan must offer out-of-network health benefits. ****** Medicaid (Caresource, Buckeye Health, Kentucky Medicaid, United Healthcare Community Plan) or Tricare coverage, unfortunately, does NOT cover home birth services at this time. ****** For those not wishing to bill their insurance or are unable to, we offer financial aid opportunities such as an early-pay discount and other possible financial aid opportunities that may be offered to you during your initial interview with us. Interviews can be scheduled at cincinnatibirthcenter.com.****** EVEN IF YOU THINK A HOME BIRTH MAY BE OUT OF YOUR REACH DUE TO LACK OF COVERAGE OR COST WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO SCHEDULE A FREE VIRTUAL INTERVIEW WITH A MEMBER OF OUR TEAM.
