Birth Fee: $750 to $1200

Fee Details: I am an experienced doula with well over 200 births under my belt and my fees are on par with my experience level. I believe that everyone deserves a doula that they feel comfortable with personally and professionally so I offer sliding scale fees within this range. Wherever you feel you fit financially along this spectrum is fine with me!

Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I think it's important to remember that I work for YOU and not your doctor or hospital so there's no conflict of interest. I can help facilitate conversations with your doctor/hospital staff about things that are important to you, but can't speak for you. I can provide information in the moment if something comes up and you want to discuss it. I can also talk with you privately about your options so that you can ask better questions of the hospital staff and talk to them on their level.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
I have completed the Advanced Practice Doula training at Mountain Midwifery Birth Center to become one of their doulas and have myself had a baby there (Colorado's only freestanding birth center). I loved it! I respect the midwives, nurses, and staff there and have a good working relationship with all of them. Since I had my second baby there they know me pretty well! I am also eager to attend births at the new birth center in Boulder, my art is even up on their walls!
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
Personally I had my last baby at home and loved it! I have also had the unique opportunity to attend over 20 home births as a doula. I love home births and had my third babe at home May 23, 2010.I totally recognize that I am a guest in YOUR home and act accordingly. I see myself as someone who is able to morph into whatever you need me to be, whether it's assisting with an older sibling, cleaning up, getting food ready, photography/video, hands-on support, whatever you need!
