Birth Fee: $400 to $600

Fee Details: Today is an exciting day! Congratulations on your pregnancy!! Whether you are a first-time mama or you are experiencing the adventure of being pregnant all over again, my goal is to make you feel confident, supported, and ready to welcome your little one earthside. While I am new to the doula scene, I have been providing support to women and their little ones through peer breastfeeding support and advocacy here in Virginia. My vision is to do my part to help make this world a safer, happier, place, one birth at a time by providing unconditional nurturing support to any woman who wants a doula. I am currently working towards my DONA International birth doula certification and I am eager to make a positive and lasting birth experience for those who invite me to join their birth team. Please reach out to me so we can identify the best way I can help you preserve a birth memory that will bring a smile on your face for years to come!

Attends home births? Some Home Births
My son and daughter were born at home under the care of wonderful birth teams (including a midwife, a student midwife, a birth attendant and a doula). I understand the importance of having the comforts of home at your disposal and how special it can be to bring your baby earthside in a space you created yourself. Provided you are under the care of a great licensed midwife, I will do my part to make your home birth dream a reality. Should you need to transfer to a hospital, I will accompany you as permitted by hospital policy.
