Phone: 310-293-2690

Birth Fee: $1500 to $1700

Fee Details: As your doula I will meet with you a few times before your little one(s) arrive(s). We will discuss your birth preferences, write a birth plan, talk about which family members will be attending your birth, and go over comfort measures. I will listen to your partners concerns and preferences as well. We will also go over comfort measures that can be applied early in labor, before I have arrived. I will be with you during your labor until after your little one is in your arms, and then about two hours after that in order to establish breastfeeding. Then upon your request, we will do a postpartum visit to discuss your birth experience and make sure that breastfeeding is going well. I am passionate about mothers receiving great care which is why I donate my time for 3 births a year to low income families. If you are in need of a doula and can not afford my rate, please still reach out. I also offer one on one child birth education classes.
