Birth Fee: $800
Fee Details: If you want something different for your birth, hire a doula! My fee includes unlimited visits so you feel prepared for your journey. i take only 1-2 clients per month to ensure that i'll be available for your birth. during our visits, we will discuss your birth plan, demonstrate comfort measures, birthing techniques, your rights and options, fetal positioning, common pregnancy issues, fears and concerns, nutrition, postpartum life, breastfeeding and more. i am available to you 24/7. i am open to bartering and trading services. As I work to be your advocate for bodily integrity and against unnecessary and unwanted procedures performed upon you, I must also work to be your baby's advocate against unnecessary circumcision. I would be happy to talk to you about the benefits of keeping your baby boy whole. i provide additional services that require payment for non-doula clients (flexible and negotiable), such as birth tub rental, placental encapsulation, belly casting and henna art.

My experience was amazing, we were a great fit. Teresa was competent and respectful of my birth plan and desires; she was incredibly supportive throughout my entire pregnancy. She was opened minded and shared her wisdom without reproach, ultimately my choices were my choices and she allowed me the freedom to make those decisions and she supported me. She encapsulated my placenta and made a beautiful gift out of it. I got exactly the birth I was hoping for and with her help and encouragement, I worked through the trauma of my previous birth experience. Her information is current and very mother/baby focused. She does not scare easily and is the perfect person to advocate for the mother that wants a less "clinical" birth. I felt very prepared for my VBAC and had all the support I could ever want and knowledge that I had someone in my corner to keep my journey on the path I had envisioned.
