Fee Details

My hours are flexible, based on your needs and your budget. Most clients schedule me for 2-3 days a week, for 3- or 4-hour visits, then gradually taper over the coming weeks. I charge $35/hour for weekday hours, $40/hour for weekends, holidays, or overnights. For clients who book me prenatally, I require a $150 deposit at contract signing to secure my services, which will be applied to the last 5 hours of postpartum doula care. The deposit ensures my availability for the time you want my help. If you have already had your baby, the deposit is waived. I am also a Certified Infant Montessori guide and can offer professional guidance beyond PP care with setting up your infant's environment, sleep training, weaning for introduction to food and guidance with older siblings.
