Fee Details

I am passionate about providing accessible doula care spanning reproductive decisions and circumstances. I have experience with in-hospital, birth center, and at home doula support and postpartum support. I offer sliding scale fees for families that meet fee ranges based on household income screenings and because I am working towards certification. My services include 1-3 prenatal appointments (including one at your home if you want at-home labor support), 24/7 doula presence from active labor through one to two hours postpartum, and 1-2 postpartum visits. Additional postpartum support is billed at $30/hour. I also provide 24/7 text and phone support from 38 to 42 weeks. I have interned with the Minnesota Birth Center Birth Doula Internship program and volunteer with local hospitals as a birth doula.

We knew Haley was the exact right doula for us within a few minutes of our first meeting. She was organized, planful, smart, warm, open. We found ourselves telling her our most honest anxieties and tensions around pregnancy and birth at that very first meeting. She listened well, without judgment, and offered important questions back. We both felt we could reflect openly with her.

Haley had experience with births in many settings. She was able to tell us more than our books/blogs could about local options, positives and drawbacks, as we figured out where and how to birth. She helped us discern so much about ourselves in preparation.

The whole time, we knew we were in good hands. We had full trust in her. Leading up to my guess date, she offered resources for any ache and pain or question I asked. And when my water broke, I was on the phone with Haley as it happened. Knowing I could keep talking to her as things progressed helped me stay calm.

During labor, Haley and my partner were dogged in their physical support. One of them applied counterpressure to my back during each contraction! They worked together so well. Haley also helped put medical info into perspective during labor. I think I was able to get through the way I'd hoped because of her.

Haley shared in our joy when our daughter emerged. She brought us coffee, helped us communicate with our families, and shared amazing photos with us from that night. She checked in on us as we headed home, visited with bread later. Our postpartum relationship was special: Again, Haley helped us process and reflect on what was a wild, beautiful and challenging experience.

We think of ourselves as doula evangelists now. But finding the right doula to be your steadfast presence is important. Haley was the right one for us. She fostered our peace, joy and wellness.

We met Haley while she was interning at the MN Birth Center. I was preparing for my third natural birth at the birth center and had a doula each time. Haley was open and communicative and so supportive! She was so diligent at checking in with me and making sure I was taking care of myself and had all the support I needed. My older children adored her :)

My birth happened so quickly that Haley wasn't present! But she was there afterward to support me and my husband. Her calm demeanor and really thorough approach to getting to know me and take care of me was really touching. I highly recommend using Haley as a doula.
