birth doula services
To me, the word doula means one who provides unconditional physical, emotional, and informational support over the course of the birth year: before conception, pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum.
As a birth doula, I aim to help you create a nurturing, supportive, and joyful birth experience. I offer objective, evidence-based information in order to assist and empower you through the birth process.
My services include:
- one free initial consultation
- two to three prenatal visits
- phone and email support
- on call 24/7 from 38 weeks to two weeks postpartum
- continuous labor support
- one to two postpartum visits
Please find my latest availability on my DoulaMatch profile. My services begin at $850. I also offer a sliding scale for certain cases, as I believe all people are entitled to nonjudgmental doula support, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, financial circumstances, or ability. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
