Phone: (888) 506-0607

Birth Fee: $1500 to $1600

Fee Details: As a Birthways doula, my rates are determined by my experience level and specific to the services needed. Labor support services are arranged in a package, while postpartum rates are provided on an hourly basis, with discounts for reserving care in advance, or in a bulk number of hours. Birthways has the largest team of doulas in the Chicagoland area, and does the matchmaking for you! In addition to doula services, we also offer lactation support, massage therapy, childbirth classes, and private consultation. With our extensive services and large team of experts, we're able to meet the needs of most every family. Our doulas receive excellent training, ongoing professional development and evidence-based information, have passed nationwide criminal background checks, and come highly recommended from families during the childbearing year. Save the hassle of doing the legwork yourself, and call us to find the perfect doula! (888)506-0607 or visit us online at http://www.birthwaysinc.com/.
