Blessed Journey Birth Services


Birth Fee: $0 to $750

Fee Details: Fees vary depending on the situation, family needs, birth outcome, and optional birth and postpartum services. I do not charge for my bereavement doula services. Families who choose me for their birth doula services will receive a discount on other services such as placenta encapsulation, postpartum doula care, and more. Because I believe doula care is not a luxury, but rather that every woman who desires a doula should have access to one, fees are offered on a sliding scale for low-income families. If you have doula coverage through insurance, I am happy to supply all the paperwork necessary for your reimbursement from your insurance company.
