GALS (Giving Austin Labor Support) birth companion Central Texas Doula Association-- member
I believe that birth and full-spectrum support can be empowering during a vulnerable and transformational time, and I feel strongly that it should be accessible to anyone who wants it. Thus, I utilize a sliding scale pricing model for companion services. Sliding scale means you select the cost you pay according to what you understand about your complex and unique financial situation–more than just your current income is involved. In deciding where you fall on the scale, you might consider your privilege & roadblocks, earned assets & debts, income, family assets & obstacles. The scale is intended to be a map, inviting each of us to take inventory of our financial resources and look deeper at our levels of privilege. While I ask you to take these factors into consideration, please don’t stress about it. Pay what feels right. Sliding scale details here: https://companioncourtney.com/

Courtney, was an angel during the process of labor. As soon as she walked in the room my family and I knew that everything was going to be okay. She listened to my needs and delivered a great service. I cannot imagine going through labor without her help .
She also drove from Austin to San Marcos for a postpartum check up and provided a lot of useful information.
Thank you so much for everything Courtney ??
Courtney was very thorough with communications . She referred me to a lot of help and was very present everytime we spoke. Love Courtney!
I'm probably not even going to be able to put into words how grateful I am for Courtney's assistance with my labor and delivery. She was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process: prenatal visits and checking in with me frequently, sending me valuable resources leading up to my due date about any questions I had, answering the phone at 4 am to help me figure out I was in labor, showing up and being 100% on the ball with everything I needed and didn't know I needed (but loved) during my labor, and then all the care and involvement she had with me and my baby postpartum. She truly made my labor experience amazing which is so important since it was my first. Her constant support and encouraging words just touched my heart and my husband and I are truly thankful for her. She was with us every step of the way and she was such a calm and reassuring presence. Her words helped me through each contraction and her touch soothes the pains. She even helped my husband be involved. We couldn't have asked for a better doula. She shows up and gives you all her heart and you feel like you've known her forever. She's called to do this and it shows. Since my labor, I have received support and resources from her that I have used and valued. I'll definitely be reaching out to her for my next pregnancy and I've already encouraged others to do the same! Thank you Courtney!!
