Fee Details

Rates are currently discounted as I am currently in nursing school. So some meeting dates may be limited. A minimum of ½ the payment is due when you select me as your doula; preferably at 28wks (to hold your dates). It is recommended to have your fee paid in full by 38 weeks, or your due date.

Mel is such a great doula. She was there to support me throughout my pregnancy and was helpful during the delivery process. Even when things changed, and my plans were rearranged, she helped keep me reassured, and never left me and my partner's side. Would definitely recommend if you are planning on getting a doula for your birth.
