Fee Details

My fees would include at least 1-2 prenatal visit to get to know each other and work through your emotions surrounding birth, support throughout labour and delivery and a postpartum visit to allow for reflections. My goal is to support you throughout your chosen birth path and empower you to make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy. I have a lending library at your disposal with many amazing books to help you learn about pregnancy and birth. I am open for a few volunteer births as I am new to the doula community, after that I would love to chat about a sliding scale option as I want to support families that may otherwise be unable to afford a doula. I have a TENS machine I bring along with me to births you can use as well. I am very passionate about supporting you and your family through this exciting journey of childbirth!

Martha was our back-up doula and she was amazing throughout my whole experience. From the start of my labor until after giving birth to our daughter. She helped both my husband and I by being so supportive with what we need and how we feel, even with our midwife. She is a very easy going and down to earth person that she worked really well with our midwife instantly. Despite not having our original doula around that day, Martha as our back-up doula, still made us feel comfortable and safe and we wouldn't have wanted any other back-up doula than her. Thank you so much Martha for your hard work and loving personality!
