Free in person interview and consultation- We will meet and get to know each other. During this time I’ll hear about your vision for the birth and we see if we’re a good fit. Partners are encouraged to attend!

 

Prenatal visits- Before the birth we will meet for two prenatal visits for approx. two hours each. During the first session we will address your preferences for the birth, discuss any questions and concerns and go over logistics. We will also discuss birth classes and the array of resources available to you. During the second visit we will focus on comfort and massage techniques and positions that may be helpful during labor and birth, together we will practice these throughout your home.

 

On call support - Upon hire date through the 4th trimester  i will be available to you via phone, text, and email. From 38 weeks on I am on call for you 24/7 until you give birth. This means my phone is always in reach and I will join you in labor once I am needed.

 

Day of Birth - My purpose is to provide continuous, calm, loving, positive, and non-judgemental support to you and your birth team. I will stay with you throughout labor and the birth, and up to three hours after baby is born to make sure breastfeeding/chestfeeding is established and family is settled in.

 

After Birth- I will come to your home for one visit within 2 weeks. Usually during this visit we will talk through your birth experience, how you’re settling in with new baby, and discuss any other resources you may require. This visit is also flexible and can be whatever you are needing in the moment. I can prepare a meal, sit and talk, or even hold baby while you take a shower (or a nap)!

 

Photography- Please see photography services for more information on the packages I can provide.

Placenta Encapsulation- Please see placenta encapsulation services for more information on the packages I can provide. 

Birth Doula Fee: $1600

 

I believe everyone should be able to have support during their birth. If fee is an issue please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I offer payment plans and can take on a limited number of sliding scale clients per quarter.
