Birth Fee: $600

Fee Details: If you want something different for your birth, hire a doula! My fee includes unlimited visits so you feel prepared for your journey. i take only 1-2 clients per month to ensure that i'll be available for your birth. during our visits, we will discuss your birth plan, demonstrate comfort measures, birthing techniques, your rights and options, fetal positioning, common pregnancy issues, fears and concerns, nutrition, postpartum life, breastfeeding and more. i am available to you 24/7. i am open to bartering and trading services. As I work to be your advocate for bodily integrity and against unnecessary and unwanted procedures performed upon you, I must also work to be your baby's advocate against unnecessary circumcision. I would be happy to talk to you about the benefits of keeping your baby boy whole. i provide additional services that require payment for non-doula clients (flexible and negotiable), such as birth tub rental, placental encapsulation, belly casting and henna art.

Attends hospital births? Some Hospitals
I have attended births at all of the major Sacramento area hospitals, However, I do not attend births at Methodist or Mercy San Juan. I can help you know what to expect at your particular birthing location. I am there for YOU, to help facilitate an environment that is most conducive to your happy, healthy, empowering birth. How you birth matters. my goal is to allow you and your partner to focus on nothing else but each other and your new baby. I provide placental encapsulation services to my clients as a Thank You gift.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
Absolutely! If a home birth isn't an option for you, a midwife run birth center can be the path to the birth you envision. I provide placental encapsulation services to my clients as a Thank You gift.
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
home births ROCK! i had one myself. i'll help you set up your home to accommodate a home birth or water birth if desired. i have two birth tubs for use. i'll work with your midwife to help you have a seamless transition from early labor support to her arrival and care. i'll stay with you after the birth until you're settled into your own bed and return for a home visit a few days later. i am particularly fond of homebirths and feel that your home is the most conducive place to give birth. babies born in a natural, gentle way are ultimately the start of a gentler, kinder society. If hospital transfer is required, I will continue to provide support. I provide placental encapsulation services to my clients as a Thank You gift.

catita howell

My experience was amazing, we were a great fit. Teresa was competent and respectful of my birth plan and desires; she was incredibly supportive throughout my entire pregnancy. She was opened minded and shared her wisdom without reproach, ultimately my choices were my choices and she allowed me the freedom to make those decisions and she supported me. She encapsulated my placenta and made a beautiful gift out of it. I got exactly the birth I was hoping for and with her help and encouragement, I worked through the trauma of my previous birth experience. Her information is current and very mother/baby focused. She does not scare easily and is the perfect person to advocate for the mother that wants a less "clinical" birth. I felt very prepared for my VBAC and had all the support I could ever want and knowledge that I had someone in my corner to keep my journey on the path I had envisioned.
