Fee Details

Moved here to TX recently from California (Jan 2021). I want you to have support. Let's talk about how to get your doula covered. There are so many options even if doula fees are not something you can afford out of pocket. Please contact me so we can work out payment details. My birth experience isn't transparent. I volunteered and also helped facilitate setting up the volunteer doula program at Santa Clara County Valley Medical Center Hospital. https://www.blossombirthandfamily.org/scvmv.html. My volunteer work was in shifts there and I didn't happen to be present for any births, but I supported many women who were laboring. I also took this program virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Very sweet and understanding , never gave up on me even when I tried to push away due to fear. If she didn't have the answer she would do everything in her power to get the best answer. She always always available and very relatable.

I have known Dominique since High School and have always known of her caring and supportive soul.  I never thought I'd be able to work with Dominique as kids weren't in my plan at the time...until they were, lol.  She was the first person I called. Not my mom, not my fiancé; My friend whom I watched work with birthing families for years and years.  "I don't know what to do, what do I do?!" I remember asking her.  She told me to breathe and this was the set up for the long journey ahead, Just breathe.  She knew how to direct my focus and energy in the moment when a hundred thoughts start racking your Brain. I lived 5 hrs away, but we'd video call or message frequently when questions arose or I had an update.  She coached me through a long birthing experience (3days?) as she made her way down to me in time for some Cat-Cow and peanut exercises to help baby and I get ready for Action.  She reminded me to breathe again as she did in the beginning and we went over our birth plan and had a few unexpected revisions.  I cannot stress enough how calming and focused she is during such an uncertain moment in time but that's why she does what she does.  I highly recommend Dominique to be a voice you want to hear next to you cheering you on and helping you through one of the most wonderful/crazy/life altering everyday experiences. 10 Stars!

I worked with Dominique to successfully achieve my VBA2C (vaginal birth after 2 cecarians). She was a completely supportive birth partner and made herself available to me and my family both physically and mentally. She was supportive of my birth plan and advocated for me during my hospital birth. She is knowledgeable of evidence-based birth and educated me on different aspects of birth that gave me the confidence to believe in myself for my first vaginal birth. Dominique's bedside manner is awesome. She is close when needed and recognizes when space is needed. She has been here for me both before and after birth. Before, she assisted me with education and comforting me through early labor. After, she provided me with a long list of postpartum support including breastfeeding and healing resources. During birth, she was extremely helpful is helping my labor and dialation progress. She is knowledgeable of different positioning for comfort and effectiveness. 

Dominique as my doula was a critical factor in helping me to have a healthy, safe and enjoyable birthing experience.

I was having my second child when I experienced working with a doula. I honestly thought because I had a child already and did a lot of research as a first time mom that I knew everything I needed to know. I was wrong and I learned so much from this experience. The knowledge shared with my husband and I helped us make informed choices for our child and family (what we could ask for and say no to). I learned birthing techniques that would later be necessary for me to use when I gave birth naturally (kind of unplanned). I was given access to equipment to use that I didn't know I would want/need (Thank you Lord for TENS units!). The experience from start to finish was excellent and I plan to have a doula for any future pregnancies/deliveries I may have. I will also always encourage my family and friends to have one too! I am forever thankful to Dominique for the knowledge, support, and love she showed our family. She also got amazing photos of our baby's first moments with us. It's truly amazing to look back on. If you have ever even slightly thought about working with a doula...DO IT! You will not regret it! ??

She worked with my husband and I and showed us many different ways to deal with the “waves!”  She was also super hands on and very informative.  I loved to the postpartum visits!

I wish I had a doula with my first baby because maybe I would have been able to go to  full term with all the calming techniques Dominique provided. She really helped me to prepare.   I learned a lot and was mentally prepared for my birthing experience

I did not want a repeat c-section and with my doula by my side, my labor and delivery turned out better than expected. Pregnant women don’t know how amazing and helpful a doula is! Nurses can be good, but they have other patients, so they can’t give a laboring patient the support she really needs!  

I didn’t know how much I needed her! If I did not have my doula I feel I would have felt alone and afraid. My body would not have endured the induced labor as long as it did without an epidural. I think I would have asked for a repeat c-section. I know I could not have worked through the contractions without her active participation. The reminders of sitting on the ball, doing some squats while in active labor, having her help to get me up on my knees and hanging onto the top of the bed when I wasn't allowed to get out of bed with the epidural the last 2 hours of labor. Then after delivery I felt my body start going into shock. She stayed another 2 hours and made sure I was stable and calm before leaving.  I felt a deep connection, like she really cared and loved me!   She made me a priority and made me feel special! You sacrificed your time, food, and sleep for me and the surrogate baby. You made communication easier and better between me and the intended parents. You were an advocate for me and I appreciate that. I know my vbac was a success because you were with me!

My partner and I were grateful to have Dominique as our birth doula. She has such a welcoming and reassuring presence. Her ability to comfort is innate. She provided us with invaluable information leading up to the birth of our first child. Dominique was always readily available via phone. Whenever we had questions, she was quick to answer and provided useful insights. After arriving at the hospital, she provided great emotional support and comfort. Finally, Dominique made herself available during the immediate post-partum period, and it was great having her advice and expertise as we navigated the first week following the birth of our child.

 


Dominique was able to give us the most amazing birth experience. I honestly couldn’t imagine it going any better than it did. She was such a blessing to have and we appreciate her gift more than words could express.

Dominique was a FANTASTIC birth doula. She filled in at the last minute for my original doula, but was a perfect fit. 
She was very supportive & helped to advocate for me during/after the birth. 
She answered all of my questions, quelled my postpartum mood swings, and was always sure to check in and make sure I was handling things well. 
I would definitely utilize her services again if the chance came up.
