Fee Details: Fees include 2 prenatal visits, entire birth, and one post-partum visit. Also includes unlimited calls/texting/emailing between 8:30am and 9pm up until 36 weeks. At 36 weeks you have more access to me for obvious reasons as we enter an on call period for 36-43 weeks.
I am working towards my certification and could use clients! I am professionally trained with toLabor. Until I am certified, there of course will be a discounted price in my services. I am open to all kinds of births, not just non-medicated like most assume. I am hired to help support and advocate what you want your birth to be like. Contact me if you have any questions at all!

Attends hospital births? All Hospitals I have attended a few births (vaginal and cesarean) in a traditional hospital setting. With the right support I feel that non-medicated and low intervention births are possible in this setting. I am here for you during your birth as you need me. No judgment, just complete support for your wants and needs. Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers I have attended a few births in a free standing birth center and one in a hospital birth center. All of these births were as unique as each client. I am here for you during your birth as you need me. No judgment, just complete support for your wants and needs. Attends home births? Any Home Birth I have yet to attend a home birth however, I am here for you during your birth as you need me. No judgment, just complete support for your wants and needs.
