Phone: 206-395-8243

Birth Fee: $700 to $900

Fee Details: Being new to Seattle, I am offering a lowered fee to get to know this community and serve families in the coming months. I meet with families 2+ times prenatally, attend the birth up until 1-2 hours postpartum and will visit you again after your baby has arrived. I am also a licensed therapist and can provide additional supports including couples support, perinatal depression or anxiety support and more. Just let me know! I can offer payment schedules but do require a deposit upon hire.
