Fee Details

On top of the time spent with you during labor and delivery, my birth fee includes 3 prenatal visits as well as 12 hours of postpartum support. Coming from an infant/toddler Montessori guide background, I am a big advocate of respecting and supporting the natural unfoldment of the child's spirit. My goal is to be a reliable support person for you and your family as you adapt to the evolving changes a child brings; through thoughtful, responsive and loving care. As a postpartum doula I am available to help with household tasks, sibling support, setting up your infant-friendly home spaces, and more.

Grady was a stable and centered resource during a hard and transitional time. Her knowledge and encouragement helped to guide me through the unknowns of parenting. I value her insights and perspective as I know she prioritizes caring for others. She is uniquely gifted in this space and I view her as a true blessing in our lives.
