Fee Details

*I offer sliding scale as a labor and postpartum doula. Those prices are not set in stone, and I trust that my clients are honest about their financial situation. In the instance that my fees can't be afforded, talk to me! We may be able to do a work/trade to have some money taken off, or work out a price/payment that works for you* My goal as a postpartum doula is to help ease you into newfound parenthood. Sometimes parents don't have adequate support after birth, and that's where I come in. I will come to your house as requested, and help you with any task that you need help with, whether that be cooking you/the family a meal, cleaning, holding the baby so that you may shower etc. I also offer light massage, yoni steams, sitz baths, etc. We will come up with a plan based on your needs.
