Birth Fee: $750 to $850

Fee Details: My birth doula fee is $750. I ask for a 50% retainer at the time of hire and the other 50% at 38 weeks. My services include a free 30 minute consultation where we meet up to briefly get to know each other and see if we are a good fit. I offer 1-2 prenatal visits at your home where we discuss your expectations, create a birth plan and go over comfort measures and pain coping techniques. I am available 24/7 for phone/text/email support to answer any questions. I will be on-call for you 2 weeks before/after your due date. From the time you call me to come assist you during labor, I will provide continuous labor support throughout the entire labor and birth. I will stay with you 1 to 2 hours after birth, or whenever you want alone time with your family. My services also include 1 postpartum visit at your home, where we reflect on your birth experience together. I am able to answer any questions or provide helpful resources at this visit.

I delivered, with the help of Ellie, my third baby, Juniper in November 2017! It was a sweet blessing to have Ellie there. Even though I was induced and was not able to walk far from the bed because I needed to be on the monitor, Ellie gave me lots of suggestions for positions and helped me move between them all! Labor is hard, but having Ellie there was a comfort and I'm positive she helped it move faster. She was also not judgmental or pushy when I did decide to have an epidural towards the end. She even had suggestions for positions with the birthing ball while I was stuck in bed. Her photography of the birth and older siblings meeting Juniper was amazing! She really captured so many special moments. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula!

I chose Ellie as my doula because since the beginning when asking about her services and also emailing her about her availability around my due date she replied right away and she was and has been so kind and amazing. I really felt comfortable around her without feeling judgmental. I felt I could be free and my real self around Ellie. Any questions I had she treated as important and she definitely helped me. She also always worked around my availability with my birth team. I definitely recommend Ellie she was the best decision I’ve made with my birth. She believed in me and respected all my decisions and also was so informative.
Ellie was amazing and I honestly enjoyed every part of her services. I also enjoyed her photography because she was able to capture once in a lifetime memories. I didn’t have time to take pictures and neither did my husband or family because we were so overjoyed and focused on the baby’s birth. Also for Ellie to take time to bring us dinner was amazing.
I sure know now that for my next baby I will definitely hire Ellie again because it was the best decision I made to help myself have a natural birth and beautiful experience.
