Birth Fee: $1000 to $1300
Fee Details: My doula fees come from experience and qualifications. Since I am a home birth midwife as well, I have skills other doulas don't have (who are not also midwives). I also have good and current knowledge of typical hospital procedures so I can help you make informed choices about your pregnancy and labor. I wish to meet with you several times to understand the type of birth you are looking for as well as be there for you in labor and postpartum to help transition and with breastfeeding.

I met Karen 5 weeks into my pregnancy as a midwife student training with my midwife. Immediately I felt a sense of calm around her. She is very friendly and gentle. She performed a few of my check ups and she was very knowledgable. Added bonus- her hands were always warm! She attended my daughter's birth- from the moment we called while I was in pre-labor to the very end. She empowered me throughout the birth and allowed me to have the experience I was meant to have. She emminates strength and kindness. When Karen attended my birth, it felt as if a friend was there to comfort me. She made sure my husband and I had the support we needed during the follow-up visits. I highly recommend using Karen as a doula.
