CD(DONA) at Tremendoulas, LLC

Website: http://www.tremendoulas.com

Phone: 561-827-3263

Birth Fee: $250 to $800

Postpartum Rate: Not specified

Fee Details: $800/birth. Financial assistance may be available to families with demonstrated financial need (low resources and income below 250% federal poverty line). Financial assistance is prioritized for expectant parents who are lacking key social support (in other words, those with deceased, hospitalized, incarcerated, or otherwise missing parents and/or spouses/partners). I will consider offers for bartering. If you are a repeat client or have given birth naturally before, you may choose a $600 birth only option, without the standard prenatal and postpartum meetings. Postpartum fees are usually $25/hour, but variations occur depending on my travel time to your home and the duration of my shifts.

Birth Doula Experience: 4 years and 6 births attended

Postpartum Doula Experience: 4 years and 4 families served
