My Doula Services
Congratulations on the upcoming birth of a new little life…each one is such a miracle!
A doula is a skilled labor assistant that guides the labor process with continuous, compassionate and uninterrupted expert support. Birth is often a journey into the unknown. Every mother must follow her own path and can gain strength from the experience. A knowledgeable, caring guide is a wonderful comfort to both mother and father. Doulas use positioning, massage, emotional support and in-depth knowledge of childbirth to aid the mother and baby during labor and birth. Doulas provide extra support and direction, allowing the family to focus on each other and have peace of mind during this special time. Birth is a natural, normal rite of passage. Doulas understand the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor and supports her through this transition and can help process the birth, if needed, at the postpartum visit.
My doula fee is $800 for the Basic Package and $1200 for the Deluxe Photography Package.
A 50% retainer is due at the time of hire, with the balance due by 36 weeks.
This fee includes prenatal support, labor, birth, and postpartum care.
The Basic Package includes one high resolution edited photograph and your Birth Story.
The Deluxe Photography Package includes 50-75 high resolution edited photographs, a slideshow video, and your Birth Story.
It does not include TENS unit rental, in which I am certified to use. Rental of the TENS unit is $30.
