Birth Doula Services

My Birth Doula Package Includes:
  • Initial interview / consultation - up to 1 hour (free)
  • 1-2 prenatal meetings
  • Full doula attendance at labor and birth, up to 2 hours after birth
  • 1 postpartum home visit
  • On call 24/7 for two weeks before and after your due date
  • Backup doula services for any times I am unavailable
My fee for birth doula services is $650. To reserve me as your doula, I ask for half of the fee paid as a deposit, and the other half is due by the postpartum visit. In some cases, price negotiation, payment plans or trading of services may be acceptable. Please do not let money keep you from having a doula!
