Birth Doula

I believe in birthing bodies and I believe in the birth preferences of birthing people and their partners. My goal is to support each birthing mother + couple with the enthusiasm and love each new life deserves.

Prenatal Doula: 

-495

I offer Pregnancy Mentoring which is ideal for mothers and couples in the first half of their pregnancy or couples who have decided they want to go through labor & birth as just a duo but want to be very prepared emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically and informationally.

This entails my prenatal support as a doula and my information resource packets:

  • information about birth and birth choices giving you more of a background for what kinds of questions and conversations you want to have with your care provider.
  • questions that time and space don’t allow for at your provider’s office.
  • identify helpful literature and resources for your specific needs
  • examine your birth philosophies and preferences
  •  your fears and concerns
  • anything at all related to this new transition of life.

As a birth doula, I have become knowledgeable about the birth timeline, pregnancy culture, products and local birth community.  If you are looking for a service I don’t provide I will help point you in the right direction.

Mileage Fee:

-55

One time mileage fee applicable for clients over 20 miles from my home address. Applies to all packages

Photography add-on:

-195

Up to 100 edited images from your birth as a visual timeline. I am not a professional photographer. I can connect you with a trusted professional if you are wanting a more encompassing photography of your birth. I am a doula first and fulfill those roles before all else but I can snap a sweet pic from time to time.

Discounts:

*Discounted service fee offered to active duty military families, repeat clients and home birth families*

As a doula, I can ethically commit to only 1-4 families a month so my income is naturally limited and my service prices are firm. If you are in need of a lowered service fee, let me know. Let’s have a conversation about it. I can provide my bartering options or help direct you to a trusted doula operating at a lower fee. We will find a financial plan that works.
