Birth Fee: $375 to $500
Fee Details: I will meet with you twice before baby comes. We will discuss labor positions, relaxation measures, how your husband/partner can be an active participant, as well as discuss any fear or concerns you may have. I will be on call 2 weeks before your due date until you deliver. Once labor begins, I will stay by your side the entire time and stay an additional 2 hours after birth. After your birth, you can expect at least one postpartum visit to see how things are going.

Jessica met with me before the birth and she and I discussed my wishes. I ended up being induced at 39 weeks so I didn't get to labor at home like I had wanted, but having Jessica there at the hospital with me put me at ease. She was there comforting me through my labor with encouraging words and massage. She also advocated for me and helped me understand my options during the process. With her help, I was able to have a pitocin-induced birth without an epidural/pain medication!
I am lucky to have had Jessica as my doula and definitely recommend her. She has a calming presence and is very knowledgable and an awesome doula!
