My current rates for birth doula services start at $850/birth.
A typical package includes at least one or two in-person prenatal meetings, where we can get to know one another, explore and discuss your priorities and concerns, discuss your birth preferences, and plan how we might best work together.
During your pregnancy, I will be available to via email, phone, or text for information, discussion, planning, and support. I love to communicate with my clients as often as they like during pregnancy, as I believe it helps to build a relationship that will serve us well when we are working together during labor and birth.
Beginning at 38 weeks and continuing until the birth of your baby, I offer 24/7 on- call availability. Once I join you during your labor, I remain with you until the birth of your baby. I will support you in the operating room during a cesarean birth, if you obtain permission from your surgeon and hospital. If permission is not obtained, I will generally wait for you in the recovery room
I usually remain with you for one or two hours after birth, until you are comfortable and your family is ready for quiet time together. I can also help with initial breastfeeding, if desired.
Because I believe that education is such an important part of preparing for your birth, I offer a 10% discount to clients who complete a comprehensive childbirth education class. A qualifying class should be an independent class such as Bradley, Birth Boot Camp, HypnoBabies, HypnoBirthing, or similar.
