Fee Details

Hello mamas! My name is Symone and I'd love to chat with you about how I can help you during this magical time. I work with all birthing people and birthing preferences - home v. hospital, unmedicated v. epidural, vaginal v. belly birth. I believe in you and your abilities as a birthing person and would love to help you work towards that! My base package includes: 2 prenatal visits, continuous email and text support throughout the remainder of your pregnancy, emotional, physical and informational support throughout your labor and up to two hours after the birth. If desired, assistance with initiating breastfeeding. One postpartum visit. My other packages are special because they include the opportunity to mix and match services with my trusted providers - No need to go through a list of massage therapists, house cleaners, personal chefs, etc. I have worked with these professionals countless times and have worked out a discounted rate for my clients!

Client Testimonials for Symone Guerra Shipley

Post a testimonial for Symone Guerra Shipley

Lorena Gonzalez


My pregnancy was ROUGH from the start - from consistent all day sickness, to SPD, to GD, and a smidge of preeclampsia - I was basically the poster child of MISERABLE. People thought I was crazy for even wanting to attempt a natural birth  so I knew it was important to find a doula who would help me advocate for myself. Symone was a GODSEND. Labor was hard and somehow she knew when to step in and when to back off and let us do our own thing. She was with me at all times and in the end I did what I set out to do which was have a happy healthy baby. Also she was fantastic after when helping me process the whole thing. I appreciate her more than I can express. I feel like the first person I’m going to call next time i get pregnant because although I know I can do it without her - she made everything so much better!!!

I cannot tell you how much my family and I LOVE Symone. She's so compassionate and caring. she loves her job, and it shows!! Use her for your doula needs, and you WONT regret it. She was instrumental in the birth of my son and I would use her for every one of my births if I could!
