Labor Doula Services Explained In-Depth – $800 - $1200 / $200 non-refundable deposit

Accepting clients for Jan 2021 

(Many other doulas in the area charge $1000+ for their service, I operate on a sliding scale system.  My minimum price for services is $800 which includes the deposit.  If you feel my services were super great and are financially able to pay more than $800, that's great!  If you feel my services were super great and are NOT financially able to pay more than $800, that's okay!  People pay what they can and what they feel comfortable giving.  There is no difference in any of the services you will receive.) 

Unlimited phone/text/email support from the moment you hire me.  “Trust is the glue that binds people together.”  I do many visits for my fee, more than most doulas in the area, because I want you and your partner to feel 100% comfortable with me.  I want you and your partner to know that without a doubt I am there only to support your birth plan and postpartum period. 

Of course, plans change, and things need to be readjusted but I will give you all the possibilities, good and bad so you can make informed decisions while pregnant, in labor, and postpartum.  I have three children of my own and will give you “mom advice” as well as “book advice” but only when asked.  I am there to help create a memory you can treasure forever and provide you with support that you can access for a lifetime.
