Pregnancy & Birth Doula

$950-$1350

Free 30 Min Consultation:
I am happy to meet with you and your partner, if applicable, to explore whether I might be a good fit on your birth team. We can meet in a coffee shop or similar public place. Email me to schedule.

​Phone & Email Support:
Once I receive your agreement and retainer fee (50% of the birth doula fee), I am available to you via phone and email. I love for my clients to contact me with questions, concerns, and celebrations as it builds our relationship. Once you are 38 weeks, I am on-call and can be reached day or night.

Birth Photography: ($200) Add On 

I will use with a free hand my phone or my professional Canon camera. No pictures will be shared with out signed consent from my clients. 

Personalized Postpartum Recovery Basket: ($250) Add On

A customized, premium, postpartum recovery basket, padsicles, a herbal postpartum soak, breastfeeding supplies, and chocolate! On the day of your first postpartum care session your doula will arrive with all the goodies. We customize for vaginal birth or surgical birth recovery and for families choosing to breast/chest feed as well as those choosing to formula/bottle feed.


​Two Prenatal Visits: 
We will meet two times before your birth to build our relationship and discuss your preferences about labor and birth. We will also explore and discuss your priorities, fears or concerns, your birth plan and to plan how we might best work together. I also want to know your own best ways of coping with pain and fatigue and how you and your partner foresee working together.

 

Back-up Doula services:

will be provided in the very unlikely event of a schedule conflict or an unforeseen emergency for both the Birth Doula arises. The fee will be paid to the Birth Doula and she will handle any payment to a back-up Doula. The Back-up Doula will be contracted by the Birth Doula in the event of a last minute conflict or emergency.



​Continuous Labor Support:
By the time labor begins, we are a "well-oiled birth team machine". Please give me a "heads-up" when you think you are in labor. We will stay in close phone contact in early labor and then I will join you when you want my in-person support until the birth.​

​Immediate Postpartum:
I will stay with you 1-2 hours after baby is born to support you in initiating nursing (if desired) and ensure that you and your partner have food on the way.

Postpartum Follow-up Visit:
​I will check in periodically in the days/weeks following the birth via text and phone calls. I typically stop by for a visit 1-2 weeks postpartum - whenever is convenient for you. We discuss the birth, feeding, postpartum care, etc.

As a doula, I do not:

  • Perform any clinical tasks, such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, and others. I am there to provide only physical comfort and emotional/informational support.

  • Make decisions for you. I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also remind you if there is a departure from your birth plan.

  • Speak to the staff on your behalf. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak directly to the clinical staff.

  • Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience. I will support your decisions and the birth that YOU desire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crescent Package $950  

My base package includes four home visits, two prenatal and two postpartum, for continuous care throughout the transition from pregnancy to breastfeeding and recovery. Each focuses on a separate aspect of preparation and adjustment.

 

  • First  prenatal, week 30-33 – at our first visit, we will develop a birth plan to establish your preferences in various scenarios; discuss the difference between my role and your partner’s in supporting you; and review the birth process and target informational resources for your areas of interest.

  • Second prenatal, week 35-37 – Our second visit focuses on pain management, including hands-on comfort measures as well as review of your preferred relaxation tools. 

  • 24/7 phone and text contact until labor – whether you can’t sleep in the middle of the night at 36 weeks, or want me to listen to a contraction in early labor, I encourage you to call me any time.

  • Continuous support through active labor and birth – When your labor enters uncharted territory and you need to know everything’s okay, I arrive to remind you how amazing you are. My purpose is to attend exclusively to your needs and comfort.

  • Optional birth photography – when I have a free hand, I will grab a camera and snap. I am not a substitute for a professional photographer, but I can often capture special moments over the course of your labor.

  • Early postpartum care and breastfeeding support.

  • Third home visit/lactation consultation, 3 to 4 days postpartum – the transition from pregnancy to breastfeeding is massive, with changes happening quickly in the first days after birth. Many dyads encounter issues soon after discharge, which I will help assess the comfort of your home. (Families who formula feed may dedicate this time to other postpartum care.)

  • Fourth home visit, 7 to 10 days postpartum – we follow up with breastfeeding and newborn care, and answer questions about your birth.
