Alameda Doula

Website: Http://alamedadoula.com

Phone: 510-637-8434

Birth Fee: $4750 to $5000

Fee Details: I am primarily a prenatal and postpartum massage therapist at this point. I only take one birth client at a time, and consider myself on call from the moment contract is signed. There is zero chance of me missing my client's birth because I am at another client's birth. My package includes massage, prenatal visits, a Spinning Babies Parent Class and more.

Birth Doula Experience: 5 years and 106 births attended

Doula Training

  • DONA International, October 2014
Type of Practice: Solo practice

Clients per Month: 1

Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I have attended births at Alta Bates, Kaisers Oakland, San Leandro, SF, Walnut Creek, Eden Medical Center, Kaiser SF, UCSF Mission Bay, CPMC, St. Lukes, SF General, Marin General, Sutter Davis, Valley Care, John Muir and some Modesto area hospitals.. I see doulas as the missing piece of the hospital puzzle. Nurses, no mater how wonderful, aren't able to provide continuous support. A doula supports the birthing mother and her partner, if she has one, in all of the time in between visits from hospital staff. She also provides continuity in an environment where most staff are on eight or twelve hour shifts.
