As each birthing person experiences pregnancy and labor differently, my services can adapt to meet your needs.
“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.”
Dr. John H. Kennell
DONA International Founder
A Doula can provide so much more than a hip squeeze and a hair tie! When you choose to work with a Doula for your child birth you are:
~ at a reduced rate of need for Pitocin.
~ lower rate of pain medication if you so desire.
~ Less likely for a cesarean birth.
~ supported continuously throughout your labor.
~ more likely to feel positively about your birth experience.
~ at a lower risk of postpartum depression if you feel supported before, during and beyond childbirth.
Having a baby? Great!
Let is go over an outline of my services. Every potential client of mine gets a complementary meet and greet to see if we are a good fit for working together!
Every client I work with will follow the same general design for Prenatal meet ups with me. I strive to meet with each of my clients a minimum of two times before they reach 39 weeks of progress.
As with everything I offer to my clients, these meet ups can be increased in number on a case by case basis. Of course email, text and regular old fashioned phone calls are included with no limits
As we approach the weeks surrounding my clients due dates I will be available to my clients on a 24/7 basis. I will be on call, generally speaking, from 39 weeks to 41 weeks. When my clients need to adjust this based on early labor signs, late labor signs, or any other reason that may prompt me to be available earlier or later than originally planned. I will adapt ASAP.
No matter what my clients birth preferences or location, I will be available from the first signs of labor without pause, through the finish line.
Back at home and feeling awesome?
Fantastic! But odds are that many clients will have other feeling mixed in there too....overwhelmed? confused? hungry? lonely? tired? (insert any emotion you can possibly think of here)?
I will be coming to see you, wherever you are, within the first 4 days postpartum. Lets get together and see if we can head off any hurdles before even arriving at said hurdle. In addition to one postpartum meet up, I am happy to build in a second or even third to my clients plan. I will point my client toward any other resources as I have extensive knowledge of what our community has to offer. For example; Lactation Consultants, Postpartum Doulas and Nannies, Local Mommy and Me Classes, and more!

I will ask for a $350.00 deposit on or before our first prenatal appointment.
The remainder is due by 38 weeks.
(all explained in our contract)
discounted price available for single parent household, income needs, and other situations too-please ask!
This is a generously discounted rate of $150.00 savings when added to your Birth Doula package!
As I mentioned previously, 2 prenatal and 2 postpartum meet ups are included in your Birth Doula package. Additional meet ups beyond that will basically just be paying for my gas!
Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss a sliding scale and/or payment options.
