Nessenbaum Doula Services


Phone: 206-432-5341

Birth Fee: $500 to $1600

Fee Details: I work as contracted doula through the Swedish Doula Program at the First Hill and Issaquah locations. My fee is currently $500 as a birth doula apprentice at Swedish. My fee outside of the doula program is a sliding scale between $1200-$1600. I believe it is important for you (the birthing person and/or partner) to have someone to provide that much needed support during the very special and vulnerable time of labor and birth. My fee includes 2 prenatal visits, being present during your labor and birth, and 1-2 postpartum visits. As your doula, I will work to provide comfort, reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, provide evidence based information, make suggestions throughout your labor progression and assist with massaging, positioning, and relaxation techniques as required.

Bethany Anne

Miss. Kiona encapsulated my placenta.

She was very prompt with communication and had a super 

fast turnaround time. She was so sweet and kind hearted, she came to me! 

Made every moment very simple, especially for a mommy with a brand 

new baby.

Thank you so much!
