Phone: 949-297-6310

Birth Fee: $750 to $1000

Postpartum Rate: $25 to $30

Fee Details: As your doula, I want to empower you during your birth experience with informed prenatal information, constant love & support, comfort measures during labor, and respect for your birth choices. My services include two prenatal visits to create a thorough birth plan, discuss any fears, and share birth goals. We also will practice using comfort measures, including massage, acupressure, and counter pressure with a rebozo. I can provide a yoga ball if you need one as it makes a wonderful comfort tool during labor. I offer 24/7 phone, text, & email support once you hire me as your doula. I am on call for you two weeks before and after your due date. I will stay 1-2 hours after birth, depending on your needs. I also offer one optional postpartum visit to debrief on your birth experience, offer guidance & support, talk about feeding & sleeping, and connect you to valuable resources in your area.
