What Is Liability Insurance for Midwives, Doulas, and Birthing Centers?

Liability insurance for midwives, doulas, and birthing centers can protect you in the event of injuries or damages caused by medical practices of a natural or prescribed medicated birthing experience and related services.

In addition to compensating victims for medical bills or the cost of replacing or repairing their property, liability insurance may protect you if an injured party sues. Without the proper coverage, you could be responsible for paying thousands of dollars in damages.

At XINSURANCE, our customized umbrella policy for midwives, doulas, and birthing centers can offer the same coverage as other policies with more coverage to fill in gaps or exclusions to give you peace of mind.

How Does Liability Insurance for These Practitioners Work?

If a patient experiences a bodily injury during your services, your liability insurance for midwives, doulas, and birthing centers may cover the claim. This coverage often applies to medical bills, preventing your practice from paying them out of pocket. Your insurance may also cover costs associated with repairing or replacing property, like a client’s items that sustain damage during your services.

If the injured party files a lawsuit, your insurance may cover the amount awarded by a jury or judge and your legal expenses, up to the limits of your policy.
