Fee Details: I strongly believe that every woman should not only have a doula, but should have the right doula for her. If I am otherwise the best fit for you, we can *always* work something out. I will provide options such as sliding scale or barter for private clients. Also work with doula registry program (contact me for more details). Discounts apply for certain situations (ask me if you have a special situation). I offer package deals with childbirth education and/or antepartum doula services.

Type of Practice: Solo practice Attends hospital births? All Hospitals I have attended many complicated, high-risk births as well as straightforward, low-risk births and am very comfortable in a hospital environment. I make it a goal to keep mothers and families comfortable in the hospital environment, "translating" and "normalizing" as necessary, regardless of risk profile. Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers I have completed the Advanced Practice Birth Support training and clinical experience at Mountain Midwifery Center (Colorado's only freestanding birth center) and have a great relationship with the birth center! I love serving clients there, and will offer a discount for Birth Center services vice hospital. Attends home births? Any Home Birth I have had two home births myself, and am extremely comfortable in that environment. I will serve at midwife-attended homebirths only (no UC/Freebirth/Zion Birth).
