Orders

We accept orders through our secure store online. Our web site is secure for placing orders online with credit card and paypal payment methods. Everything Birth will NEVER sell or share customer addresses or contact information.

Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. We will make every attempt to notify you if pricing or availability will affect your order.
All orders must be prepaid before being fulfilled.

If you want a birth kit adjusted, such as ordering your midwife's kit, but need to remove certain items from it, then you MUST order with paypal and write your adjustments in the NOTES box at checkout, or order via phone.

Special Orders

If there is a product you don't see on our site, we would be happy to attempt to special order it for you. Special orders must be prepaid and are not returnable.

 

Shipping

We make every attempt to use recyclable shipping and packing materials. If materials are not recyclable, we have reused them and ask that you do, too.

There is a minimum of $7.00 on all orders.

Packages are NOT insured unless you choose the $4.00 shipping upgrade option upon checkout. You must select the insurance box in order to have your package insured no matter what if any shipping applies. Lost or damaged items that were NOT insured are the responsibility of the customer.

We use both USPS (Parcel) and UPS for shipping. Please be sure to provide both addresses if it applies. Any fees for items returned for wrong addresses (a USPS package mailed to a UPS only address), or incorrect addresses will be charged to the customer.

Orders requiring faster or alternate delivery must be made BY PHONE with an Everything Birth staff member. Please leave a message. We generally return calls within 24 hours, Monday-Thursday, EST 10am-2pm. And sometimes sooner when we can.

For email, fax, or phone orders, regular delivery schedules will apply unless you have approved faster shipping.

Birth kits and birth pools to Alaska and Hawaii will receive additional charges due to weight. To find out the charge please email us at info@everythingbirth.com for a quote.
