Phone: 6083203874

Birth Fee: Not specified

Postpartum Rate: $20 to $25

Fee Details: Families who choose me as their doula are gaining access to the knowledge (both learned and experienced) I have sourced from various books, training workshops, continuing education courses, practice of skills, and life. While those things make it hard to place a monetary value on what I offer, the fees are a reflection of the time & financial investment I have made. I offer flexible payment plans with 50% retainer fee due at the time of contract signing. Fee includes 3 prenatal visits, continuous labor support, and two postpartum visits with thorough communication in between. I’m committed to serving families of diverse cultures regardless of income, background, or racial identity. I am happy to work with families to see how I can provide customized care that is affordable. I welcome you to discuss your situation with me to determine what you are able to pay for quality, full-spectrum doula care.
