Fee Details: I charge a flat fee, which includes two prenatal visits where we discuss your wishes, options, preferences and other important information. Two weeks before and after your due date I will be on call and ready at a moments notice. Once you are in labor, we can meet at your home and travel to the hospital or birth center together or I can meet you there and will support you through the entire labor and birth.
Once your baby is born, I will stay with you for up to two hours and take pictures, make sure you have everything you need and help support you in breastfeeding if you choose. We will meet again after your baby is born in about two to six weeks to review your experience and discuss how new motherhood is going :) Please feel free to give me a call so we can chat!

Attends hospital births? All Hospitals I attend births at all valley hospitals, with experience at Chandler Regional, Banner Desert, Banner Mesa and Banner Gilbert. St. Lukes, St. Joseph's and others. I am comfortable working in any atmosphere and vehemently support whatever informed choice my clients make. Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers Yes! I love all birth centers. Attends home births? Any Home Birth Yes! I LOVE home birth, all four of my daughters were born at home. I also recognize this is not always the best choice for birth and that many women feel safer in a hospital and birth center. I feel privileged to live and work in a state with such a variety of choices available to women and their families.
