Attends hospital births? All Hospitals

I will support you and work with your midwife team through labor and delivery, until you are settled and comfortable with me leaving. We will speak ahead of time about siblings and make sure everyone/everything is taken care of so your focus can be on baby.

Attends home births? Any Home Birth
I will arrive at your home when you feel you need my support. We will speak ahead of time about siblings or anything else that you may want my support with. I will stay until your family is settled and my support is no longer needed.

Fee Details

My fees include 2 prenatal meetings at your home, plus 1 complimentary meeting beforehand to get to know each other. During our prenatal meetings we will discuss things like what kind of support, labor, and birth you want. You will also receive birth plan templates and resources for birth preparation. I will be available 24 hrs. from 38 weeks through labor and delivery and schedule 1 prenatal visit when you are comfortable for me to bring a gift for your family and talk through your labor and delivery. During this visit we can discuss how you are feeling, and I will give referrals for whatever is needed. $500 is due when you sign my contract agreeing to my services, and an agreed upon balance of $300-$500, depending on your budget, is due by the time of your second prenatal meeting. I am a Christian with no vax requirement and would love to meet with you! Please see my FB page, Peaceful Birth Doula Services to learn more about me and how I can support you.

Katie was the perfect Doula for us! We were immediately impressed by the communication, compassion and  effort she put into finding resources specific to our needs. Any questions or conversations we had were met with understanding, thoughtfulness, and follow-up. She is honest, direct, respected our time and was dependable. We had an emergency c-section due to pre-eclampsia and she was BY MY SIDE when I woke up! She took pictures of my FaceTime call with my husband, who went up to the NICU, introducing me to our son...it was so special to have that! She asked the nurses questions on my behalf, knowing what was important to me as mama, when I was recovering from anesthesia. She was intentional about learning what was important to both of us and I was grateful how she showed respect for my husband's voice, feelings and really empowered him as a new daddy. The thoughtful, compassionate, comforting presence throughout our birthing process that Katie provided was a blessing to our family and we highly recommend her!

We hired Katie for my first Birth Center Birth and I was happy she was part of the team. She was so thoughtful, responsive, calm, and hands-on (that's what I needed). She was a great communicator and I appreciated her checking in. We are so grateful for her and couldn't have asked for a better doula. Thank you Katie!!
