My style as a postpartum doula is very consultant based. I recommend an initial contract of 12 hours. After our contract is signed, we will meet in the late prenatal/early postpartum period to assess your needs. I am very focused on taking a holistic mental picture of your postpartum plans/hopes/support systems/space and helping to create sustainable systems that make your life a little smoother, while screening for potential issues that may come up and getting ahead of them(primarily postpartum mood disorders and infant feeding issues). I will certainly pitch in with tasks as needed, but find that my clients benefit most from the creation of day to day scaffolding that supports them when I’m not there.

Birth/Postpartum Package- $1150

$575 is due at the time we sign our contract, the remaining balance is due at 38 weeks of pregnancy.

This includes birth doula services and 16 hours of postpartum doula services. This package is a great value and ensures that you have good postpartum care and support for you and your family! The 16 hours can be used anytime during the first 12 weeks after the baby is home(shifts of 2-4 hours). More postpartum doula hours can be purchased at the rate of $25 per hour. Please see above for more information on my style as a postpartum doula.

Private Chilbirth Education Class- $125

If you are unable to take a longer childbirth education class(which I recommend if at all possible!), I am happy to be able to provide you with a 4 hour childbirth education session in the comfort of your home.  I will also leave you with my booklet, which has an easy to follow layout that helps you know if you are in labor, what you might expect, and comfort measures you can use. The booklet is also a great tool for your partner and/or support person.
