Fee Details: For my birth package, I will meet with you 1-2 times before your baby comes to discuss your birth preferences, go over comfort measures for labor and start preparing you for your fourth trimester. I will give you continuous care throughout labor & birth and stay with you up to 3 hours postpartum. I also provide two follow up postpartum visits lasting one hour each to address feeding and baby care questions, offer emotional support and provide additional resources that might benefit you. From the date of hiring me, I will be available to you at all times via phone call, text and email. I guarantee that I am on-call from 38 weeks gestation with several trusted back up doulas. My postpartum rate is $25 an hour for day-time, minimum of 3 hours per visit and $30 an hour for overnights, minimum of 8 hours per visit.

Client Testimonials for Ariana Micek

Sierra Luke

Ariana was a literal lifesaver during our son's sleep battles. She was supportive, empathetic, proactive, calming....the list goes on and on. She gave us multiple nights of good sleep that kept us going throughout the week, and even helped us with our sleep training! She was incredibly kind and helpful, and went above and beyond to try and help us with whatever changes our son was going through. As a first time mom with post-partum depression and anxiety (as well as insomnia), I cannot express enough how much I appreciated Ariana's support. She was so good with our son, and did a few daytime support sessions for me after rough nights, which gave me enough sanity to make it through to the weekend. She checked in with me regularly, gave me reassurance that what I was going through was normal for PPD/A, and helped me get through the worst of it. I wish that all new mothers had the opportunity to receive the help that I received, as it made it possible for me to be a functioning human again. Having a baby is hard, having a baby when you have PPD/A is hard, having a baby with sleeping and eating issues is hard, but all of this was made more bearable with the amazing support that Ariana gave us.

Ari was a godsend, I cannot imagine going through the transition of being a new mom without her help. She has been such a source of nonjudegemtal help; she doesn’t make me feel dumb if I don’t know something or am second guessing myself. She answers all my questions with empathy. She cares for my sweet baby boy with patience and allows me to rest and take care of myself. Thank you so much, Ari! Arlo and I love you.

Ariana is a caring, capable and well-prepared doula. I knew we made the right decision to hire her for the birth our our first child when I called her the night my water broke... 5 weeks early! Ariana dropped everything and came straight to our home to help me pack a hospital bag and gather my wits. She was a calming influence from the minute she stepped in the door, which my husband and I needed desperately in that scary moment.

Ariana supported with us throughout my labour which lasted into the early hours of the next day, and ended in an emergency C-section due to breach positioning. As my birth plan fell apart in the ER, several times over, Ariana kept her composure and led us through the experience with a clear head. I would highly recommend Ariana as a doula. Her passion and professionalism are paralleled by her intuition and warmth, which make her a joy to work with.
